MOSCOW, July 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will do everything possible to re-orient exports of goods produced in Transdniestria to the Russian market, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin declared at a meeting with a delegation from Tiraspol on Tuesday.
"Under the conditions of an economic blockade which has already been enforced, our task is to re-orient products produced on the territory of the Dniester region to Russian markets," Rogozin said. Until now, the bulk of the products produced in Transdniestria had been intended for EU countries, Rogozin added.
He praised the Dniester-produced products for high quality. "When we studied the possibilities of the Dniester industries, we were greatly surprised to see that a number of the Dniester products were not merely competitive, but they were highly competitive. One of the Dniester garment factories has been making clothes for the Austrian army, Rogozin said, adding that "the quality is very high and meets European standards".
The Russian government has been thinking if they can support the Dniester population by creating new work places. This is a big program to be realized by different ministries.
