Uzbekistan launches web-based sale of agricultural products

By bne IntelliNews April 13, 2016

Uzbekistan’s Chamber of Trade and Commerce has launched website agrosale.uz that allows Uzbek farmers to sell agricultural products directly for exports, news website UzDaily.uz reported April 12.

The launching of the website is one of many measures taken by Uzbek authorities to expand exports of Uzbek agricultural products. The Uzbek government has also formed a company focused on exports of agricultural products, called Uzagroeksport. The authorities aim to increase exports of Uzbek foodstuffs by almost threefold, which could meet Russia’s demand for exports of agricultural food products, since Russia has imposed sanctions on exports of food from Turkey and Western countries. Uzbekistan and neighbouring Tajikistan are seen by Russia as a cheaper alternative to Western or Turkish agricultural imports.

The government has adopted a development programme for the country’s food industry, which envisages allocating $595.5mn for 180 investment projects by 2021, UzDaily.uz reported earlier. As part of the programme, the country aims to create 15 logistical centres for “processing, storing and transporting” food products with a capacity of 60,000 tonnes.
