The delegates of Russkaya Kozha JSC arrived in Mongolia to expand their cooperation within the framework of the Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2019 with the Mongolian Agricultural Exchange LLC on cooperation in production and supply of leather raw materials.
Delegates noted that Mongolia’s great potential for the development of the light industry, including processing of raw hides and skins, and production of value-added end products. They expressed Russkaya Kozha’s full capability to cooperate in sharing experiences and training personnel and internships at its factories.
In December 2021, 67.3 million head of livestock were counted in Mongolia, and an average of 15-17 million pieces of sheepskin, goatskins and bovine hides are processed annually. The local tanneries are developing to a certain extent, but their capacity is insufficient. Thus, the Government of Mongolia is paying much attention to the establishment of industrial and technology parks in Khovd and Darkhan-Uul provinces as stated in its Action Plan for 2020-2024, and has resolved the required financing.
