The domestic linen industry can become two times more efficient within several years, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said while inspecting Orsha Linen Mill. The head of state studied the company’s production facilities, inspected shop floors, talked to employees and examined product samples. The president criticized agricultural industry chiefs and governors for inadequate amount of domestic flax fiber, which quality is often poor. About a third of capacities of Orsha Linen Mill is not used, while part of flax fiber for processing has to be purchased from other countries. Naturally, this affects the price of the end products and the company’s performance in general. The head of state gave instructions to expand operations and roll out new products.
