Uzbekistan to begin exporting agricultural products to India
Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 11
By Fakhri Vakilov - Trend:
In the near future, Uzbek farmers will begin to export melons, lemons and grapes to India, Trend reports referring to the state plant quarantine inspection under the Cabinet of Ministers.
The authorities of Uzbekistan have already received phytosanitary permission for the supply of these agricultural products.
The inspection noted that in recent years, cooperation between Uzbekistan and India in the field of agriculture has been actively developing.
In August, Indian Union Minister of State for Panchayati Raj, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Parshottam Khodabhai Rupala visited Tashkent. Then, an agreement was reached on issuing permission to the authorities of Uzbekistan to export melons, lemon and grapes.
The parties also discussed the planned supply of another 20 types of agricultural products from Uzbekistan to the South Asian country. Among them are walnuts, peanuts, pistachios, ginger, as well as dried products (apricot, cherry, plum, bell pepper, greens). The issue of issuing to our authorities an appropriate phytosanitary permit is now being decided.
It is worth noting that Uzbekistan began to supply fruits to India last year. Then, during the visit of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev to this country, an agreement was signed on the supply of apricots, cherries, plums and nectarines.
