41 projects were developed aimed at creating research and production clusters in the Bukhara region in 19 promising industries, such as textile, food, leather and footwear industries, the production of building materials, fish farming. In Bukhara and Romitan districts, it is planned to create 2 textile and knitwear clusters, in which a full production cycle will be implemented: from cotton fiber processing to the production of finished garments and knitwear, and in Shafirkan, Romitan, Vobkent, Peshkun and Kagan districts it is planned to create 6 clusters in the Food Industry.
The Uzstandard Agency will create testing laboratories providing for the introduction of innovative technologies to control the quality of products, as well as organize special programs for training, retraining and advanced training of personnel of the enterprises being created.
The structure and volumes of imports of the Bukhara region have been studied. It was noted that, taking into account the available raw material potential, components for the oil and gas sector, synthetic and mixed textile materials, electrical products, construction materials and other products can be established in the region. In addition to the existing localization program, 15 new projects were developed to organize import-substituting industries. In total, following the implementation of 43 projects under the localization program, by the end of 2021, import-substituting products will be produced in the amount of 631.6 billion soums and about 1200 new jobs will be created.
