Continuing dynamic development


Light industry plays one of important roles in the large-scale changes taking place in our country under the leadership of President Islam Karimov. On the one hand, this is the almost 20 per cent share in the total industrial production, and hundreds of businesses, strong currency earnings from exports.

On the other hand, light industry produces more than half of all consumer goods in Uzbekistan filling the domestic market with necessary products to the population, etc. And one of the most important components of the industry is textiles; the government pays special attention to its development during the years of independence.

For example, the favorable investment climate created in Uzbekistan, quality cotton fiber by the domestic production, abundance and relative cheapness of energy resources, availability of skilled personnel, and a number of other important factors as well as the system of privileges and preferences to foreign investors, made textiles one of the most attractive industries for foreign businessmen wishing to invest in the economy of our country.

More than 1,5 billion dollars of foreign investments involved in the industry in recent years, already have an effect. More than 100 joint ventures and foreign enterprises are created in cooperation with partners from the USA, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Turkey, Korea, Singapore, and India; presently they produce 95 percent of domestic textile products. And this is a wide range of quality products what defines the great demand not only in the country but also abroad. It is sufficient to say that 80 per cent of products by the general joint-stock company “Uzbekengilsanoat” are exported to Europe, Asia and America. And if, for example, in 1994 exports of textile products were only 7.7 million dollars, last year they rose to 405 million dollars.

One of recent achievements of the company is that the proportion of domestic processing of cotton fiber was brought to 30 percent. In order to replace imports, they implemented more than 50 projects, specialized in production of clothing. Incidentally, the latter is of particular importance, including the purely economic perspective.

But let's get back to some results of the general joint-stock “Uzbekengilsanoat” last year. Thus, by creating new productions, modernization of textile enterprises with new equipment and technologies, they have achieved the production growth rate of 120 percent. They turned out commercial products at comparable prices of almost 730 billion sums, including consumer goods of more than 143.5 billion sums. In 2008 they produced more cotton yarn, finished fabrics and knitted goods than planned, and the production of hosiery has increased by 2, 5 times over the last year.

According to “Uzbekengilsanoat”, last year they drew the capital investments of about 134.5 billion sums including foreign investments of 102.6 million dollars. They created more than twenty new, modernized and technically re-equipped companies, where created about eight thousand new jobs with the help of these funds. And the number of home workers involved by enterprises of the company over the past year, exceeded 1,5 thousand people.

Judging by the results in 2008, the main techno-economic performance of enterprises under “Uzbekengilsanoat”, and not just textiles, is implemented and exceeded. But this is, as they say, no reason for calm. Moreover, the leadership of the country set specific goals for textile workers. In particular, it is necessary to bring the volume of processed cotton fiber in the country to 50 percent. In spinning industries they are to increase the yield from 80 to 90-95 percent, and increase the production of yarn of high numbers. In weaving productions it is necessary to master the manufacture of mixed fabrics, especially shirt fabrics, and in knitting and garment productions - to create a family of finished products and master the manufacture of hardware. Presently the staff of enterprises under the general joint-stock company “Uzbekengilsanoat” works on solutions of these tasks.

Capacity grows, export expands


Every year our country strengthens its position in the international market and moves intensively from the export of raw materials to export of products with high added value. The team of the Uzbek-Turkish JV “Cottontex” in Khorezm region also makes its contribution to this important matter.

Last year the joint venture equipped with the latest equipment by the Swiss company “Rieter” and German company “Trutzschler”, produced over one thousand tons of high quality cotton yarn, most of which was exported to the near and far countries. In particular, they sold the products worth over $US 1.3 million in Turkey, Russia, and others.

The important success factor for the joint venture is the comprehensive state support in developing and strengthening the material-technical base of textile enterprises.

- In the near future we plan to involve the investments at the rate of over one million dollars and thus, increase the production by 2.4 thousand per year, - said the director of the JV Ruzimboy Abdullaev. - This will let bring the volume of yarn exports to six million dollars and create 50 new jobs.
The production expansion at the expense of its own funds and involvement of new investments will contribute to raising living standards and, of course, strengthen the image of the enterprise. However, such well-known companies as the firm “Inter Oliva”, LLC “Borteks”, “Russpetskomplekt”, “Interteks” and many others have already made sure of the trustworthiness of the Khorezm partners and prefer to buy the products with the brand name of “Cottontex”.

New Productions and Jobs


One of the priorities in the economic development defined by the Government of the country is the involvement of foreign investments, their effective management and foundation of new modern productions of export-oriented products as well as new jobs.
In the huge departments of “Spentex Tashkent Toytepa” Ltd located in the capital the equipment works almost round the clock turning cotton fiber into high-quality yarn and canvas.
The company created through foreign direct investments made by Spentex Industries Ltd, part of the number of the fastest growing companies of India, organized two textile productions at modern technical and technological levels in Tashkent and Toytepa, and it is considered one of the largest of its kind in the region.
- Despite the global crisis, the consequences of which, of course, affect the operation of any large scale production to some extent, we continue to work in the former regime, - said the commercial director of “Spentex Tashkent Toytepa” R.D. Gupta. - Last year we produced and sold the products at $US 65 millions, up to 90 per cent of which is aimed at exports to Turkey, Russia, Egypt, Israel, Ukraine, Belarus, Great Britain, Czech Republic, Portugal, and several other countries.
The popularity of our products can be explained by the fact that its range is very wide, and we, for example, can produce any number of yarns according to customer's requirements. The modern equipment of leading world producers and, of course, hard work, diligence, and suitably qualified local staff allows us to do that.
Mr. Gupta also told us that presently when many countries wind up productions, Indian investors did not refuse their plans to expand the business in Uzbekistan and continue to work on the creation of a dyeing factory in Margilan, in Ferghana region.
