Not enough plastic

We started contacting the neighboring regions of Zhambyl and Kyzylorda [for provision of raw material]. We found out that both of these regions work only for export. One supplies to Uzbekistan, the other to Russia. Domestic processors are left without raw materials. As for jobs, we employ 21 people; our processing line is about 25-30% loaded. If we calculate the potential workload, we can create jobs for 50-60 people.
