"The garment factory in Tskhinval will start manufacturing its production in August, 2013," told IA "Res" the First Deputy Prime Minister of South Ossetia Guram Melkoev.
The work at the Tskhinval garment factory was suspended during the Georgian aggression in 1989-1992.

The difficult economic situation has left without a job about 1,200 people who were working at the factory. Since then, the building of a former garment factory has been functioning as a large shopping center, making it possible for residents of the post-war South Ossetia to earn their living wage. Now the garment factory is being restored. On the invitation of the Republican leadership the prominent Russian businessman, president of the St. Petersburg company"BTK Group" Teimuraz Bolloev undertook to resume regular production by the factory.
The businessman is ready to invest in the development of the enterprise.
In an interview with the correspondent of IA "Res" Melkoev has explained that the initial stage of the garment factory output will create about 150 jobs.
"In Soviet times, about 1200 people were working at the garment factory. Now the factory is ready to create only 150 jobs for local residents. The workers, who in Soviet times were employed at the factory, have expressed a desire to return to the factory. Though the building is still at the stage of restoration, we have been accepting the applications for a job. It was also installed the equipment for testing the workers,"- said Melkoev.
He has noted that the opening of the factory is scheduled for August 2013. The factory will produce professional uniform and bedding.
"In the Soviet era the factory was manufacturing various production- garments, bedding, and now it is planned to begin taking orders for sewing professional uniform and other garments. Currently, the building of the garment factory is at the stage of capital repairs, which should be completed in June, "- said Melkoev.
The Garment factory building is being restored on the personal funds of the investor.
