The modern complex is aimed at producing 3,650 tonnes of yarn, 12 million square metres of fabrics and 1.2 million tonnes of finished products annually, he said.
Once commissioned, the enterprise will employ 1,300, and sell in domestic as well as export markets, Gylyjov was quoted as saying by media outlets in the country.
President Berdimuhamedov emphasised that Turkmen designers should develop and launch new clothing lines.
