MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The exposition presented samples of metalworking products, woodworking products, food products, sewing and souvenir products.
The presented samples of products interested the visitors, among whom were representatives of the state authorities of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Ugra, law enforcement agencies of the region, public organizations, and numerous invited guests.
The head of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug-Yugra, Alexander Fedorov, told the participants of the event about the production capabilities and types of products in the centers of labor adaptation of convicts in the penitentiary institutions of the penal system of the Autonomous Okrug.
– One of the main tasks of attracting convicts to work is their re-socialization, assistance in obtaining labor skills, vocational education and obtaining a working specialty in demand on the labor market, – said the head of the Federal Penitentiary Service, Alexander Fedorov. – The penitentiary system has a huge production potential, which makes it possible to provide not only state needs, but also to effectively cooperate with business, contributing to the development of small and medium-sized businesses. However, these production facilities and jobs need to be developed and filled with government orders.
Also, the FPS noted that in accordance with federal legislation, the territorial bodies of the FPS of Russia can carry out mutually beneficial cooperation with enterprises of any form of ownership. This makes it possible to conclude contracts in the field of procurement of goods, works and services, as with a single supplier, bypassing the bidding procedure, and also solving a number of socially significant problems, such as the employment of convicts and their further social adaptation.
The guests were interested in the manufactured products. Samples of furniture and sewing products aroused particular interest. As a result of the exhibition, negotiations were held on the possibility of manufacturing furniture and certain types of garments for the needs of departments and municipal organizations.
The event also sold food products manufactured by the correctional colonies of Ugra.
In 2020, the volume of sewing products by the district administration institutions amounted to 11.3 million rubles. This year, 10 contracts were concluded for the production of sewing products for the amount of more than 5.5 million rubles.
