Uzbekistan Today (English) - - REGIONS -

In Uzbek­istan, the new “Orzu” small in­dus­trial zone has started op­er­at­ing.

It is planned to im­ple­ment in this area 22 projects to­tal­ing more than 142 bil­lion soums in such sec­tors as light in­dus­try, pro­duc­tion of foods, print­ing prod­ucts, med­i­cal equip­ment, poly­eth­yl­ene bags and films, en­ergy sav­ing lamps.

Over the past time, within the frame­work of the ex­e­cu­tion of th­ese di­rec­tives, spe­cial at­ten­tion was paid to the al­lo­ca­tion of land to busi­ness en­ti­ties, the for­ma­tion of road in­fra­struc­ture, elec­tric­ity and wa­ter sup­ply sys­tems, and the al­lo­ca­tion of loans. As a re­sult of work to cre­ate the nec­es­sary con­di­tions for set­ting up in­dus­trial pro­duc­tion, 10 en­ter­prises were put into op­er­a­tion on the ter­ri­tory of the zone.

“In the small in­dus­trial zone, or­ga­nized on the ini­tia­tive of the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try, we have opened one more en­ter­prise for the pro­duc­tion of gar­ments,” said the head of the Is­tiqlol Design Markazi B. Umarov. “Our trouser suits, pro­duced un­der the brand name Ideal, are in high de­mand not only in our nation, but also in the for­eign mar­ket. Set­ting up such zones is a good op­por­tu­nity for en­trepreneurs, and it is im­por­tant to use this ra­tio­nally.”

In an area of more than one and a half hectares, Orzu Ideal Tek­stil has im­ple­mented a project worth 24 bil­lion soums. At this en­ter­prise, a pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity of 250,000 pieces of cloth­ing per year and an ex­pected vol­ume of ex­ports of $ 2 mil­lion, 500 jobs have been cre­ated. In the next stage of the project, 250 more peo­ple will be pro­vided with work.

In ad­di­tion, as a good gift to the cel­e­bra­tion of na­tional in­de­pen­dence, about a thou­sand jobs have been cre­ated in the Orzu in­dus­trial zone in such en­ter­prises as Por­loq Tek­stil Li­boslari, Nuro­bod Si­fat Tek­stil, Ulug-B, White Gold Towel Tex­tile, Kvars Sanoat Servis, Bosir Tek­stil Servis, Sugdiy­ona Fayz Tek­stil, Universal Food Trade, Mega Eco Plast.

Fol­low­ing the full im­ple­men­ta­tion of all the projects, the an­nual ca­pac­ity of pro­duc­tion in the small in­dus­trial zone will ex­ceed 82 bil­lion soums, while about 4 thou­sand peo­ple will be pro­vided with em­ploy­ment. The bulk of the prod­ucts will be ex­ported.

Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev dur­ing his trip to Na­man­gan re­gion this May got ac­quainted with the projects be­ing re­al­ized in this small in­dus­trial zone, gave due in­struc­tions on their timely and high-qual­ity im­ple­men­ta­tion. In the fu­ture, three more small in­dus­trial zones, Yuk­sal­ish, Pakhta­likul, Khono­bod, are ex­pected to be or­ga­nized in Na­man­gan. This will cre­ate in ex­cess of 12,000 new jobs.
