Rieter and Zhongtai Dangara
The Zhongtai Dangara Agriculture and Textile Industrial Park is scheduled to invest a total of USD 320 million in three phases of construction. The project consists of: an agricultural park with 15 000 ha for growing cotton; a spinning plant with 110 000 spindles and manufacturing facilities for weaving, printing and garment. In 2015, around 333 ha of cotton were planted and two supporting ginning plants were completed.
In 2016, the first phase has been completed and put into production. The project has been listed as one of Tajikistan’s “National Projects” and “Key Projects of Cooperation between China and Tajikistan.” On May 28, 2016, the 60 000 compact-spinning spindles had a successful initial run producing premium yarns of USTER 5% quality.
