President Shavkat Mirziyoyev: Country will introduce new system

Uzbekistan plans to increase fruit and vegetable exports to US$5 billion

Uzbekistan plans to raise its fruit and vegetable exports from the current US$1.3 billion to US$5 billion by introducing an agricultural cluster system. Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has stated that the country will introduce a new system for the development of fruit and vegetable clusters and farms, especially family-based farms, as well as for the expansion of agricultural services.

The measures will include allotting preferential loans of US$186 million for producers of fruits and vegetables, and creating and financially supporting clusters, so that they can buy finished products from farms and peasants. Also, the Uzbek government will reimburse half of the crop insurance costs for exporters, as well as 50 percent of costs of hired foreign experts, according to the press service.

Recent data indicates that Uzbekistan has exported over 1.4 million tons of fruits and vegetables in 2020 to dozens of countries, including China, Russia, Kazakhstan and Pakistan.
