Tajikistan has enjoyed an increase of around 30% in its production of textiles and clothing in the first eight months of the year. Exports are also growing.
The country has also seen an increase in leather production, most notably in footwear.
During the eight-month period, the amount of leather goods produced accumulated over $5 million. Tajikistan, however, imported nearly $6 million worth of footwear, exporting only just over 25k worth.
