Ukrainian shoes are quite competitive and we see that Ukrainian light industry shows a medium to high growth rates. Of course, a significant part of we now sew on the raw material, when we actually sew on the order of foreign brands, but more and more Ukrainian companies are also starting to sew what is called under private lable”, – said Gaina in the air “5 channel”.
