Nowadays in accordance with the policy of restructuring over 2,000 manufacturing enterprises have the right to sign contracts with foreign companies direct through their own import-export departments. Also, joint enterprises are being set up to manufacture products for sale in this country and in third countries (for example a joint venture of the Russia and Yugoslavia to produce consumer goods and souvenirs from plastics set up in 1988, "Lenwest", a Russian-German joint venture for the production of footwear or "Tatoilgas", also Russian-German; "Hightech", a Russian-American joint venture set up in 1998 and many others.
