First textile technopark coming up in Uzbekistan

Construction of a textile training and research technopark has begun within the campus of the Tashkent Institute of Textile and Light Industry. The project, scheduled to be completed in 2018, is being implemented by Ozbekyengilsanoat Joint Stock Company along with the Korean ministry of commerce, industry and energy.

As per the draft plan prepared by the Korean team, the technopark will cover over 4,000 sq metres. Classrooms, conference rooms, exhibition halls, laboratories, offices and other facilities will be available in the high-tech 3-storey building. The 2-storey building will have weaving, knitting, dyeing, and sewing machines installed.

The setting up of the textile technopark would help in the development and implementation of international training and research programs to be implemented in Tashkent Institute of Textile and Light Industry. The technopark will also train Uzbek people in using advanced information and communication technologies, in particular in the field of high value-added products like finished fabrics, sewing and knitted goods.

The setting up of the technopark will help the Uzbek light industry to reach a qualitatively new level of development and improve the training system for the sector, which is one of the main export-oriented industry of the country.
