The videoconference was chaired by the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Uzbekistan to the Islamic Republic of Iran Bakhodir Abdullayev.

Opening the meeting, Ambassador B. Abdullaev introduced to the participants the head of “Rahpouyan J.S.” Mr. Golamhuseyn Tabrizi, asking him to give a brief information about the activities of the enterprise.
On the part of Mr. G. Tabrizi, it was noted that the company “Rahpouyan J.S.”, specializes in the production of greenhouse equipment. It was founded in 2007 and is the largest greenhouse construction company in Iran, which plays an important role in the country’s agricultural sector. He also said that two of the company’s plants are operating in the Iranian cities of Sava and Tabriz, and it is planned to launch a third production facility in two months. The company’s portfolio includes design and creation of greenhouse complexes in Azerbaijan, Iraq, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Georgia, as well as the Khorezm, Bukhara and Samarkand regions of Uzbekistan.
He emphasized that the greenhouse equipment manufactured by the company is resistant to snow, rain, storms, strong winds, extreme heat, earthquakes and other natural disasters. In turn, the director of the Uzstandard agency D. Sattarov noted that due to a natural disaster in the Bukhara region, the republic’s leadership is now setting new requirements and standards for the construction of greenhouses in Uzbekistan.
Speaking about the company’s proposal, Mr. G. Tabrizi noted that if the necessary conditions and opportunities in Uzbekistan are provided, the company can invest to implement an investment project to create an enterprise specializing in the production of greenhouse equipment in the Bukhara region.
Greenhouses will be produced on the basis of European technologies and in accordance with international standards, and the cost will be 25% cheaper than that of foreign manufacturers.

According to the plan submitted by the Iranian side, the investment project will consist of 14 small projects.
