Uzbekistan textile industry exported its products worth $1.1 bn to more than 50 countries in the world 2017 and the share of value-added products exceeded 40 per cent. The growth of export indicators was facilitated by the activity of 64 trading houses which were opened in foreign countries, according to reported quoting statistics from the Association of Textile and Clothing and Textile Industries Enterprises (Uztekstilprom). One of the effective forms of further development of the textile industry will be the creation of clusters. This model implies the organisation of a single production cycle, which includes the cultivation of raw cotton, primary processing and its further processing at ginneries with the release of final products, Uztekstilprom’s representative said.
