Today, on March 18, inNikolaevthe meeting devoted to discussion of a present condition of a production activity in regional colonies and prospects of cooperation with the Nikolaev enterprises took place.
At this meeting which took place in management of State department of Ukraine concerning execution of punishments inNikolaevareas, heads of the Nikolaev colonies told about goods which are made by prisoners (for today the Nikolaev area in colonies contains nearly 3 thousand efficient prisoners).
The range of made production is quite wide - from leather mittens to granite blocks and monuments (almost all Naberezhnaya Street in Nikolaev is paved and decorated with the granite products made in the Kazankovsky corrective colony No. 93). However now, in connection with an economic crisis, demand for similar production fell (in warehouses the goods for the sum more than 4 million UAH lie) therefore present it was offered to find a way out of current situation together.
The deputy governor of the Nikolaev area Vladimir Lusta noted that it is necessary to adjust cooperation not only with the local enterprises, but also to consider possibility of cooperation with other states, for example, with Russia.
"It is necessary to solve - as we will accumulate this production. In particular, it is necessary to solve a problem with warehouse", - Vladimir Lusta noted. According to the deputy governor, warehouses need to be placed on all Nikolaev area that will provide availability of production to buyers.
One more, but quite considerable problem, is the old power-intensive equipment which use increases production cost. Though It should be noted, what even in this situation the cost of production made in colonies, is much less than market. "We for kopek didn't increase cost by one production, our prices and remained at the level of last year", - the head of department of State department of execution of punishments in the Nikolaev area Vasily Solovey told.
Following the results of performances at this meeting it was decided to submit to the governor of the Nikolaev area the application on consideration of involvement of the Nikolaev enterprises (for example, NPKG "Dawn — Mashproyekt", JSC Wadan Yards Okean, etc.) to close cooperation with colonies, and also to consider a question of construction of warehouse for production - with its subsequent realization in the Nikolaev market.
