Despite the wide experience of the republic in the cultivation and procurement of fruit and vegetable and other agricultural products, it was noted that it is necessary construction of modern agrological complexes for proper storage and deep processing of vegetables and fruits for further export to foreign countries.
From the Uzbek side, it was proposed to consider the Tashkent, Syrdarya and Surkhandarya regions as territories for the construction of an agricultural complex. It was noted that the creation of an agricultural complex in the Surkhandarya region will make it possible to arrange the supply of agricultural products to countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, including thanks to the existing largest logistics terminal Termez Cargo Center LLC.
