Presidents visited to an Excavator plant in Urgench

Accompanied by Shavkat Mirziyoyev, Emomali Rahmon visited the UzXCMG JV in Urgench.

The Uzbek-Chinese joint venture was established in 2014. The first phase of the project involved large-scale assembly of agricultural machinery, the second - industrial assembly, and the third - the localization of production.

At present, 13 types of excavators and 10 types of special equipment are manufactured here. Such equipment, which is essential for water, construction and road maintenance, used to be imported from foreign currency. There were many problems with the supply and service of spare parts.

The launch of the joint venture is not only addressing this need, but also increasing the economic potential of the region, the opportune implementation of irrigation and land reclamation measures in Uzbekistan.

To date, the company has produced about 2,000 pieces of special equipment in accordance with international standards. The level of localization has exceeded 50%. It is now intended to export products offshore, including to neighboring countries. Excavators and special equipment can also be produced to order.

The Tajik guests looked through the plant's operation, agricultural machinery and special equipment.
