President Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited the small industrial and business zone “Barkamol Avlod”, in Namangan.
Technoparks and small industrial zones are being created in Uzbekistan to support entrepreneurship. In Namangan region, the number of such complexes has reached 73.
There are many entrepreneurs and artisans in “Barkamol Avlod” mahalla. But they had to work at home, which limited the realization of their potential.
Therefore, an industrial complex with the necessary infrastructure was organized next to the mahalla on an area of 10 hectares. 46 projects are being implemented here. Work has been completed at 18 enterprises. They have already started their activities. More than 2 thousand jobs have been created.
The Head of state got acquainted with the technological process at Master Class Design, Sifat Yog’och Sanoat and Balance Tex enterprises.
The first company produces 150 thousand leather shoes per year. Sifat Yog’och Sanoat can produce 1.2 thousand sets of furniture per year, and Balance Tex – 400 thousand textiles. Young people from neighboring mahallas who were previously unemployed work there. Due to the quality and affordability, the products replace imported analogues.
“We have enterprising, energetic people. So, we created conditions, and things went uphill. Now it is necessary to help manufacturers reduce the cost. The cost price is a matter of the entrepreneur’s survival. If it decreases, it will be easier to export. The business will expand, and it will be able to hire more workers”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
Equipment is being installed in other projects of the industrial zone. In general, it is planned to launch the production of ready-made clothing, leather goods, building materials, furniture, paper, food and chemical products. More than 6 thousand people living in Barkamol Avlod, Yakkatut, Yangihayot, Objovuz, Lola, Chaman mahallas will be employed.
Here the President got acquainted with the exhibition of industrial products produced in Namangan. Instructions were given to develop along with the advanced branches of beekeeping, jewelry, fruit and vegetable growing.
