The Uzbek light industry, particularly, textile sector is being considered one of the most strategic, government-supported and dynamically developing sectors of local economy.

Numerous quantitative and qualitative changes, according to the expert evaluations, have recently taken place in the textile industry of Uzbekistan. Attractiveness of the industry for foreign investors is secured by availability of steady and vast stocks of raw materials, specifically, high quality cotton fibre, low costs for energy resources, qualified and relatively inexpensive labour resources, advanced network of communications, developed system of banking and legal services, availability of vast sales markets of textile products and apparel.

Economic performance of the industry has seen a significant increase in the volume of domestic processing of cotton fibre, exports, production rates and attracted foreign investments. For instance, the share of domestic processing of Uzbek cotton fibre has reached 40% of the total production volume.

During the years of Uzbekistan’s independence around 200 enterprises with foreign capital from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Turkey, the US, India were established. There were over USD 1.5 bln. of foreign investments attracted into Uzbek textile industry.

The Government of Uzbekistan has approved and launched the Program of Modernization and Development of Textile Industry for years 2010-2015. This document envisages conducting establishment, modernization, technical and technological rearmament of another 100 textile enterprises by attracting of over $200 mln.annually. Thus it is planned to increase the share of domestic processing of cotton fibre up to 50% and increase by 2-2.5 fold in average the export potential of Uzbek enterprises.
