Uzbekistan and Russia are considering the launch of two new industrial parks in Samarkand and Bukhara
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Uzbekistan and Russia are considering the possibility of creating two more new industrial parks in Samarkand and Bukhara. This became known at the 4th meeting of the Joint Commission at the level of heads of government of Russia and Uzbekistan.
“The creation of joint industrial parks has become a very promising area of cooperation. The Chirchik chemical technology park operates successfully in Tashkent region. In April, a new project was launched - a technology park in Jizzakh region of Uzbekistan. Work is underway to prepare an agreement on the creation of similar parks in Navoi and Bukhara regions,” noted Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Abdulla Aripov.
Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov noted that industrial cooperation in a wide range of industries occupies a significant place in the development of Uzbek-Russian relations. One of the development tools here was the creation of industrial parks.
“One of the tools for developing cooperative relations is the creation of industrial parks. Two are already operational. We are also counting on two more sites - in Samarkand and Bukhara. And this is a good help when a ready-made infrastructure is formed, where investors already come - in fact, they just have to place their capacities, fixed assets in order to optimize the timing of reaching production indicators and supplying products not only to the domestic market of Uzbekistan, but also to third countries,” he emphasized.
