Uzbekistan increasingly moves into the focus of international procurement interest. Over the past decade, the international textile sector has experienced enormous shifts in global economic power and international trade flows. The corona crisis has further accelerated this development and made the structural changes clearly visible. Since Uzbekistan has focused on sustainability in cotton cultivation and promotes state-of-the-art processing in its own country, contacts between German and Uzbek companies have noticeably intensified. Opportunely located on the Silk Road, Uzbekistan is open to trade and has good conditions to become an industry platform for the entire region. Against the background of the vast German consumer market, the German textile and clothing industry with its worldwide leading role in textile technology is predestined as Uzbekistan’s preferred cooperation partner in Europe.

German knits have always been more than just fashion, they incorporate social trends, technical innovation, new materials and fashion culture. Unique design, the use of superior yarns and state-of-the-art technology form the basis of their international success. About 250 companies belong to the sector, this represents 7.8 billion Euros of exports per year.
