“Made in Uzbekistan” Exhibition Showcases Leather and Footwear Excellence in Turkey

The 'Made in Uzbekistan' exhibition showcased the craftsmanship and quality of Uzbek leather and footwear, highlighting new international collaborations and investment in training and production.

An exciting exhibition titled “Made in Uzbekistan” recently took place in Ankara, Turkey, showcasing the rich craftsmanship and quality of Uzbek leather and footwear products. Organized by the Uzcharmsanoat association, this event provided a platform for Uzbek enterprises to display their diverse range of products and foster international business connections.

The exhibition featured over 100 samples of leather, footwear, leather goods, fur, and wool products from more than 20 prominent Uzbek companies. Visitors had the opportunity to experience the high-quality materials and meticulous craftsmanship that distinguish Uzbek products. The exhibition’s comprehensive display highlighted the diverse capabilities and innovation within the Uzbek leather and footwear industry.

Adding to the international flavor of the exhibition, Turkish raw materials and chemical products that serve as import replacements were also showcased. This inclusion emphasized the potential for cross-border collaboration and the enhancement of production capabilities within Uzbekistan.

During the exhibition, a significant meeting took place between Akbar Sultanov, the acting chairman of the Uzcharmsanoat Association, and the head of the Turkish company Gerede Jelatin. The discussion centered on the production of Halal-certified gelatin products in Uzbekistan, with Gerede Jelatin expressing readiness to assist local enterprises in achieving this goal. This collaboration signifies a step towards diversifying Uzbekistan’s product offerings and adhering to international standards.

The exhibition also attracted interest from the international investment company Arastu, which is keen on establishing mono-centers for training in Uzbekistan. These centers aim to train Uzbek specialists with the expertise of Turkish professionals, ensuring the transfer of valuable skills and knowledge.

A memorandum of cooperation was signed between the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, People’s Bank, Arastu, and the Uzcharmsanoat Association, cementing this collaborative effort.

The creation of these mono-centers is planned for several cities across Uzbekistan, addressing the need for skilled labor in the growing leather and footwear industry. The initiative also includes plans to begin shoe production in Uzbekistan, with an ambitious goal of producing 100,000 pairs of high-quality shoes by the end of 2024. This project is expected to significantly boost the local industry, with the potential to produce 5 million pairs of shoes annually and train 5,000 specialists per year.

In conclusion, the “Made in Uzbekistan” exhibition in Ankara successfully highlighted the strength and potential of Uzbekistan’s leather and footwear industry. By showcasing high-quality products and fostering international collaborations, the event has opened new avenues for growth and development. The agreements and partnerships formed during the exhibition signal a promising future for Uzbekistan, with increased production capabilities, skilled workforce development, and expanded product offerings on the horizon.
