Uzbekistan: Cotton and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

As of March 2020, Uzbekistan liberalized the cotton market with a presidential decree. Starting from the 2020 harvest season, State regulation of cotton production, price and mandatory sales plan is abolished. The effects of this will be more visible in the upcoming seasons. The cotton production area is estimated as 980,000 hectares for Marketing Year (MY) 2020/21 and the production is about 3.1 million bales (about 670,000 MT). It is expected that Uzbekistan’s cotton exports will be kept to minimal levels due to the government policy to increase value-added yarn and fabric production and develop the domestic textile industry.
