Experts estimate that despite the outbreak of COVID-19, the two countries’ agricultural cooperation increased by more than 60 percent between January and August this year, exceeding $ 630 million.

Recently, at a meeting of the intergovernmental commission of the two countries, a clear vision for agricultural cooperation was explained and a “roadmap” for the agricultural sector was designed.

The news of the agreements comes amid a recent flurry of poultry by the Uzbek president to fight absolute poverty.

It should be noted that the average per capita consumption of chicken meat in Uzbekistan is 10 kg.

Uzbekistan Reconstruction and Development Fund has also allocated more than $ 50 million to support poultry farming in the country.
