Today Uzbekistan is one of the important world producers of natural textile fibers, cotton fabric and knitwear. Uzbekistan's light industry, in particular the textile sector, is one of the strategically important and dynamically developing sectors of the national economy. The attractiveness of the industry for foreign investors is determined by a number of factors. Among them, availability and stability of the raw materials base, namely, high-quality cotton fiber, affordable energy prices, skilled and inexpensive labor, well-developed production and logistics infrastructure, financial and legal services systems, capacious and unreached promising sales markets in the region.
According to experts, in recent years in the industry there have been multiple qualitative and quantitative changes. The main economic indicators of the industry, namely, the volume of domestic processing of cotton fiber, production volumes, exports and attracted foreign investment increased several times. The specific weight of cotton fiber processing reached 40% of the total production. Modern textile enterprises including dyeing, finishing, knitting and sewing industries were put into operation.
About 200 enterprises with participation of foreign investors from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Turkey, the USA, India, etc. have been created over the years of independence.
