President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has become familiar with projects of Technopark, established in Yashnabad district last year. The production of electronic gas meters has been launched here in February 2020.
The second promising project – a plant for production of household refrigerators has been launched today. The President visited the company and launched production by pressing a symbolic button.
The Head of the state together with public representatives became familiar with the technological process. The plant worth $51.5 million is equipped with technology from South Korea’s Samsung Electronics. Korean specialists were involved in installation of equipment and project launching.
The production of refrigerators in Uzbekistan has been established before. This company is distinguished by its ability to produce high-tech products of a new generation with more advanced characteristics.
“Former aircraft factory ceased operations and remained unattended. Measures we have taken here in recent years are gradually yielding results. Our goal is to provide people with jobs and wages, to produce and export competitive products”, said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
Thanks to complete automation of the process, the company is able to produce products every 19 seconds. It is planned to export 30 percent of refrigerators with high added value. It employs 1,500 people.
During the conversation with public figures, the Head of the state touched upon the issues of industry localization. It was noted in particular that in 2016, about 100 thousand tons of copper were produced, and by the end of this year this figure will reach 150 thousand tons. It is planned to increase production to 400 thousand tons. As is known, copper is widely used in production of industrial goods. Increased production will help replace imports and enhance competitiveness of domestic products on the world market.
The Technopark was established in August 2019. In 2020-2021, it is planned to implement 15 investment projects. It is expected that after their completion, the production volume of Technopark's enterprises will amount to $800 million per year.
