Natalya Gershun, Minister of Economic Development and Industry of the Irkutsk Region:
- Informing enterprises about opening opportunities for export is one of the main tasks of the “Export landing”. We have many enterprises – manufacturers of products that will be to the taste of partners from abroad. And business support institutions operating in the region can give a comprehensive assessment, suggest which goods will be of interest abroad, assist in finding new partners, completing documentation, and obtaining the necessary certificates.
In Ust-Ilimsk, a meeting of the landing team with enterprises of the forestry, manufacturing, tourism, and food industries took place. Representatives of timber processing companies reported that the sanctions against Russia affected the geography of exports. Many organizations have managed to reorient themselves and find new partners within the country, but interest in foreign markets remains. Food manufacturers today are also experiencing difficulties in entering new markets.

The Pulp and Cardboard Mill is the largest investment project in the domestic industry in recent years, the volume of investments is more than one billion dollars. The new plant will produce up to 630 thousand tons of containerboard per year, a significant share of which will be exported to Asian countries.
In addition, the experts visited the Ilimsky Les timber processing enterprise, which is engaged in the trade of timber and building materials, sanitary equipment, and supplies products to the regions of Russia, South Korea and China. In the building materials market, the company sells molded products mainly from Siberian larch.
