Fruits and vegetables, exported from Uzbekistan, will be delivered to Russia according to a simplified scheme. The corresponding agreement was signed in Tashkent on 1 October during a visit to Uzbekistan by a delegation of Russian senators led by Valentina Matvienko.
Dozens of Russian companies now work in Uzbekistan, and the number of enterprises with Russian participation has long exceeded one thousand. More than 7 billion dollars alone are investments in the country’s economy by Russian oil giant Lukoil, while Gazprom is developing the second field here.
On 1 October, representatives of the government and business of Russia and Uzbekistan put their signatures under another document that will help bring more grapes, persimmons, figs, pink pomegranate, tomatoes and other famous Uzbek fruits and vegetables to our country. This is a “road map” that aims to quickly deliver fruit and vegetable products from Uzbekistan to the Russian Federation, including by simplifying customs procedures.
