President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev gets acquainted with new projects in the oil and gas and chemical industries, electrical engineering and pharmaceutical industries, via videoconference.
An unstable situation is observed in foreign markets as a result of the impact of the pandemic. In particular, at present, the export of natural gas produced in Uzbekistan to China has decreased by 3 times, and to Russia has completely stopped.
In this regard, Uzbekistan is following the path of deep processing and monetization of natural gas and all raw materials in general. Measures are being taken to increase the economic efficiency through production of import-substituting and export-oriented finished products.
