The President of Bashkiria Rustem Khamitov has visited the village KARKAMAN in the course of his today’s work trip to Karmaskalinsky region RB and the villagers told him about their problems. For example, the big enterprise “KARLAMANSKY sugar plant” works during just two months a year. The President RB has inspected the production facilities of the plant. Some years ago the plant produced about 250 tons of condensed milk daily. Now the output makes up just eight tons.
The workers of the plant say they have just five working das a month and the plant’s leadership explains these difficulties by the shortage of raw milk in the region but in reality the suppliers are available but because of the price policy and untimely payments they refuse to supply the plant with milk. The workers don’t even know the plant’s owners. Rustem Khamitov has mentioned the plant needs a real master and they have to attract investors and to work up a business plan. Besides, it is necessary to determine what kind of assistance the Republic can render.
“Local condensed milk is a Bashkiria’s brand, the same as the Bashkir honey” – the head of the region said – “The enterprise has all possibilities for further development and financial recovery”.
The plant is per se the only enterprise in the region, where one can find a job. Five thousand people live in the village for today and one thousand works at the plant, so the prosperity of the whole village depends on its successful activity.
Besides, the local secondary school is found in emergency state. The village’s hospital also leaves much to be desired.
The President of Bashkortostan promised the villagers to solve their problems in the nearest future.
