Last year Russia and Uzbekistan increased agricultural products turnover by 20%, up to $555 mln. Dmitry Patrushev, Minister of Agriculture, provided this data within the business meeting in Moscow with Zhamshid Khodzhaev, the Head of Agricultural Department of Uzbekistan.

Meanwhile export of Russian products grew by 15%, up to $355 mln. Almost 40% of supplies belong to oils and fats of vegetable origin as well as products of their processing, including sun flower oil and margarine. Besides, Russia is exporting sugar, confectionary and soy oil meal to Uzbekistan. Mr Patrushev mentioned that Russia is interested in supplies expansion in future.

Uzbekistan in its turn sends fruit, vegetables, nuts, juice and alcohol beverages to the Russian market. In 2018 Uzbekistan goods import volume exceeded $200 mln.

Mutual trade growth became possible due to the agreement on “green corridor” and cooperation in the sphere of phytosanitary monitoring. Russia and Uzbekistan have a huge potential for the further development in different directions.

The sides agreed to exchange the experience of crop farming, fish breeding, science and technology, to work on agriculture digitization and integration of agricultural products tracking systems.

Collaboration prospects discussion will be continued within the coming meeting of Russian-Uzbek agricultural working group. Russia offered to conduct the meeting at the beginning of March in Tashkent.
