Moldova is an important export market for Russia’s textile industry.
And Moldovan textile producers are looking for ways to get into the American market.
The textile industry employs about 7,500 people in Moldova and employs about 100,000 workers.
But Russia has been cracking down on Moldovan imports in recent years.
“Moldova’s textile production is going down because of the sanctions imposed on Moldova,” said Oksana, a Moldovan tailor.
“The main reason is that the government is not exporting as much cotton as it used to.
Moldovan producers have been looking for a way to enter the United States.
As Moldova’s cotton production declines, the country is relying more and more on imports from Russia. “
But the problem is that Russia is importing a lot more cotton than the Moldovan industry needs,” she said.
As Moldova’s cotton production declines, the country is relying more and more on imports from Russia.
In 2014, Moldovan cotton production was $2.1 billion, according to the Moldova Agricultural Bank.
By 2018, it was down to $1.8 billion.
