Commodities

The government of Uzbekistan is expected to continue to lower the targeted cotton planting area and production and in marketing year (MY) 2019/20, planted area is expected to be about 1.06 million hectares and production about 3.58 million bales (480 pound bales), which is 780,000 metric tons (MT). Domestic cotton consumption is increasing each year with new investments, which in turn is reducing cotton availability for exports. The MY 2019/20 domestic consumption estimate is about 2.98 million bales (650,000 MT), and exports of cotton are down to 505,000 bales (110,000 MT) but exports of yarn, fabric, and textiles are increasing.
