The share of imported crude oil in 2008 will have about 47% total consumption. Will be imported approximately 20% of organic chemical raw materials. The share of imports needed for the three major types of synthetic materials will be more than 30%. Be over- inorganic salts, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, caustic soda, soda ash, coatings, dyes and rubber products; here have to rely on exports.
