Uzbekistan harvests over 7 mln tons of grain
Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Oct. 22
By Demir Azizov - Trend:
Grain growers in Uzbekistan harvested 7.3 million tons of grain in 2015.
Uzbekistan's President Islam Karimov congratulated cultivators on this great labor victory.
The president's congratulatory letter read that Uzbekistan, which in past had to import grain from abroad for huge amounts of money, and which has lived through difficult times when the flour supply in the country was enough for only seven to ten days, is now a country that not only provides bread to its own population of over 31.5 million people, but also exports grain.
