Petrs Jašinsks, General Director of Utenos Trikotažas, says that he has managed to find partners in Daugavpils who bought the Utenos Trikotažas franchise. “So far in Utena, where the company’s factory and clothing store operate, we have welcomed many buyers from Latvia – we already know our clothes in Latvia.”
