According to MIFT, the cost of the project implemented by NBA ALLIANZ LLC is $13 million, of which $5.5 million is foreign direct investment. This project, which is also part of the localization program for producing imported products, is designed to produce 30 thousand tons of various export-oriented types of cardboard per year. At the same time, the volume of exports will amount to at least $5 million.
