The Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Uzbekistan hosted a meeting with representatives of the Korea Rural Community Corporation (KRC), the Korea Agency of Education, Promotion and Information Service in Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (EPIS).
The parties discussed the development of cooperation within the framework of existing and planned joint projects.
At the meeting, an agreement was signed between the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Uzbekistan and EPIS on the launch of a new project “Introduction of modern Korean technologies for year-round cultivation of strawberries”. The $3.7 million project is funded by a grant from the Government of the Republic of Korea through official development assistance. The project will be implemented until December 2026.
To this end, a modern solar-powered greenhouse for growing strawberries will be built on the territory of the Center for Agricultural Services under the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Korean specialists will build and equip a greenhouse for seedlings and an In Vitro Laboratory for the production of high-quality strawberry seedlings.
