External turnover between Kuban and Uzbekistan has doubled over the past five years

Over the past five years, the Krasnodar Krai and Uzbekistan have almost doubled the external turnover up to 100 million dollars, as reported by the press service of the region.

The external turnover between the Krasnodar Krai and Uzbekistan during the first quarter of 2022 was 22.5 million dollars. Kuban exported animal and vegetable oil and fat and imported textiles, vegetables, fruit and nuts.

Light industry is the priority area for the Krasnodar Krai as more than 300 clothing and furniture enterprises of the region need fabrics, threads and fittings. Also, due to a great annual flow of tourists, Kuban has a market for the ready-made products of light industry, including clothes and bed linen.

The Krasnodar Krai may increase the supplies of canned goods, meat and dairy products, food equipment, packaging and radioelectronics.

This year, while at the Innoprom exhibition, the Krasnodar Krai and Uzbekistan have concluded agreements for 25 million roubles, and 19 more potential contracts amounting to almost 400 million roubles are still in progress.
