 - Trade turnover increased by 70% last year and reached $902 million. We have never had this. For half a year - more than 400 million, - Sh. Mirziyoyev said, adding that “these figures are not the limit.”

 According to him, there are all opportunities to bring the volume of trade to more than 1 billion US dollars by the end of this year, and in the medium term it can be doubled, because there is every reason for this.
