Uzbekistan and India have the potential to experience flourishing growth. Uzbekistan, strategically located in the heart of central Asia, is the 6th largest cotton producer. Cotton contributes 68% to the country’s export of fibre which was recorded to be $2.66 billion in 2021. Foreign investments are huge in the country with around 300 textile companies established through foreign investment from China, South Korea, Russia, India, Singapore, Germany, Switzerland, and others.
In 2018, Uzbekistan recorded imports worth $710.38 million and in FY21 imports worth $474.46 million with spinning having a major share constituting 36% followed by processing and garmenting machinery having a share of 19% and 14% respectively. Today the country’s textile machinery imports are majorly being imported from China. But India is one of the lookout countries for advanced engineering solutions. Uzbekistan India strategic alliance can aid in the best sourcing of spinning and other allied machinery into Uzbekistan that will uplift and advance Uzbekistan's growth further and creates its name not just as a producer for textiles but as a strong spinner. The spinning sector which is currently accountable for more than 1.6 million spinning spindles will further increase and through channel partners in India, the current statistics of having 100 thousand chambers can also further increase. The garmenting machinery range and weaving machinery from India can also develop new brands to come into the country as well as increase their woven fabric production, the release added.
With the dynamics of youth and urbanization in Uzbekistan combined with India’s brand image and strong engineering background, a strategic partnership by mapping the skillset of both countries will bring prosperity to both countries. Both India and Uzbekistan having the strength and rich heritage in cotton will only benefit from one another.
