The total trading volume increased by 15.2 percent and reached 13.9 trillion soums at the Uzbek Republican Commodity Exchange (UzEx) in 2017 compared to 2016, Aziz Abduganiev, director of UzEx auctions, told Trend.

“The number of new customers increased by 22 percent due to the simplification of the accreditation processes of UzEx electronic trading participants,” Abduganiev added.
