BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept. 18
Klavdiya Romakayeva - Trend:
The investment and consulting company in Uzbekistan BMB Trade Group considers the expansion of the range of export products as one of the priority tasks of its production and trade and intermediary activities, Baxodir Kamilov, Advisor to the General Director for Public Relations and Communications of BMB Trade Group LLC told Trend.
Uzbekistan possesses large land areas, where legumes and fruits and vegetables are mainly grown, some of which are sold to the domestic market. In this regard, the main focus is on the creation of joint investment projects aimed at creating the production of export-oriented products that are in demand on the partner's market.
“It is necessary to emphasize the high role and active participation of our diplomatic and trade missions, accredited abroad, which carry out solid work to establish contacts with representatives of the host country’s business community, as well as a wide range of support and assistance to domestic businessmen,” Kamilov said.
An example of such cooperation is the project developed with the assistance of the Embassy of Uzbekistan in Italy for the cultivation, processing and guaranteed export of saffron to Italy, which has found its practical implementation within the framework of the BMB-Opera Zafferano joint venture in the Jizzakh region.
“Modern laboratory equipment will be delivered to Uzbekistan to issue certificates of quality compliance with world standards not only for saffron, but also for other fruits and vegetables,” the advisor said.
Agronomic support will also be provided by leading Italian agricultural scientists from the Catholic University of Piacenzi. The Italian side will have the opportunity to organize the largest saffron plantation and will expand the joint export of processed products to the world market.
In addition, with the support of the diplomatic mission of Uzbekistan in France, a joint project was implemented with the French Advantage Central Asia company to create an enterprise in Paris for the packaging of dried fruits and vegetables exported from Uzbekistan using equipment that meets European standards.
“The uniqueness of the project is in the fact that laboratories that have received accreditation from the Russian Rosselkhoznadzor have been launched n the territory of the complex, which issue the certification of the products passed control here on the spot,” the advisor added.
Kamilov noted that this will enable the organization to continuously and in an unlimited manner supply domestic products through the border and custom green corridors (customs clearance system) straight to Russian trade networks.
“Uzbek exporters can draw up the documents necessary for the authorized Russian authorities directly at the Agrologistic Center and use the opportunity to carry out guaranteed exports. This, in turn, serves to strengthen Uzbek-Russian ties and increase the volume of exports of domestic products to Russian markets,” Kamilov said.
