Uzbekistan is one of the largest producers and exporters of cotton and its textile industry is a relevant driver for the national economy. Thanks to the raw material’s availability and low production costs the business conditions are favourable for the development of the local industry. The upgrading of installed equipment is considered a step to achieve this goal, ACIMIT reports.

According to the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, in 2016, Italian exports amounted to EUR 15 million, exceeding 2015 figures, with a 16% increase. Among the Italian machines most in demand by Uzbek textile companies are knitting machinery (62% of the overall total) and spinning machinery (24%).

ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 manufacturers, employing close to 12,000 people and producing machinery for an overall value of about EUR 2.7 billion, with exports amounting to more than 85% of total sales.
