A num­ber of projects are be­ing re­al­ized in Uzbek­istan to fur­ther de­velop the wine in­dus­try, cre­ate new, pop­u­lar and promis­ing grape va­ri­eties that are in high de­mand in the global mar­ket.

The joint-stock com­pany Uzsharob­sanoat to­gether with the Uzbek State Re­search and De­sign In­sti­tute for Land Man­age­ment con­ducted stock-tak­ing of the ar­eas al­lo­cated for vine­yards. As a re­sult, it was re­vealed that to­day the vine­yards in the coun­try oc­cupy 73.3 thou­sand hectares, of which 11.5 thou­sand hectares are in­dus­trial plan­ta­tions. Now, sev­eral promis­ing va­ri­eties are grown on th­ese vine­yards.

In 2018-2023, Uzsharob­sanoat plans to ex­pand the ter­ri­tory of its vine­yards from 4.3 thou­sand hectares to 20 thou­sand, which will cre­ate 3,200 new jobs.

“We also in­tend to plant vine­yards this year from French seeds on 2.5 thou­sand hectares of land in the Ferghana, Sa­markand, Andi­jan, Na­man­gan, Bukhara, Khorezm, Tashkent re­gions and the Re­pub­lic of Karakalpak­stan. How­ever, this does not mean that we will im­port only French seedlings, now the pro­pos­als of other coun­tries are be­ing stud­ied, in­clud­ing those of Italy, the USA, and Chile,” said the head of the de­part­ment for the de­vel­op­ment of in­dus­trial viti­cul­ture and raw ma­te­rial base of Uzsharob­sanoat Dil­shod Az­i­mov.

Ac­cord­ing to him, for the pro­duc­tion of high-qual­ity goods, work is cur­rently underway to mod­ern­ize the ca­pac­i­ties of en­ter­prises that are part of the joint­stock com­pany.
