Honourable Friends, Ladies and Gentlemen!

The akimat of the South Kazakhstan Region would like to invite you to take part in the international exhibition and forum “MACHTEX – Textile Industry Products and Machinery” that will be held on 8-9 October 2015 at the exhibition centre “Korme Ortalygy” in Shymkent.

The analysis of our country’s competitive features has revealed that the textile industry is one of the seven most promising clusters. The plans formulated for the respective events of each cluster are already under way. The cotton textile cluster in the South Kazakhstan Region has been chosen as the first pilot cluster.

In the framework of the forum for the development of light industries, the discussion will focus on issues relating to government support for this branch, the improving of tax legislation, the modernisation of the technological foundation and the training of qualified personnel.

The trade show of the “MACHTEX” exhibition will present the most recent equipment, technologies, aftermarket, innovative materials, as well as associated goods and services for light industries, required by domestic light and textile industry enterprises for modernising technical equipment and production.

Today the promising development of the domestic light industries in the contemporary environment of a common economic market and the Customs Union requires, as never before, consolidation of the efforts of the business community, government authorities and bodies, the different unions and civil society.

I am confident that the exhibition and forum “MACHTEX” will provide a particular impulse to the development of the domestic textile industry.

Dear Partners, Colleagues and Participants of the Exhibition!

The Association of light industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan, that unites textile, clothing, knitwear, leather and fur enterprises, as well as footwear enterprises, welcomes you and congratulates you on the opening of the 1st Kazakhstan International Exhibition and Forum “Products and Equipment for Textile Industry” – MACHTEX 2015.

The international exhibition MACHTEX 2015 promotes the development of the textile industry of Kazakhstan and creates conditions for export of different self-produced products, including the products of the textile industry.

For the development of the textile industry, Kazakhstan has sufficient cotton production for manufacture of home textiles, cotton yarn, and fabrics of sustained demand in countries of the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, and the CU.

In the south of the republic, a cotton-textile cluster is being formed. The Special economic zone “Ontustik” has been established which is directed at the development of the textile industry in the republic.

The international exhibition MACHTEX 2015 demonstrates equipment, a variety of products, and the high quality of their production to the visitors.

I wish a fruitful work to all participants of the exhibition and forum
