Relevance of the project:
The current situation of the domestic textile and light industry and related industries, estimated by their macroscopic upsurge, which has begun to develop recently, has not provided grounds for optimism yet. For example, today Russians are of 80% dressed in imported clothes. Such a large country should have strong and modern textile and light industry. This is not only a guarantee of national security, but also the filling of the budget, and the employment of our citizens, and ensuring the modern development of all types of equipment, and wide application to produce high-tech products, as in the case of developed countries.
