Uzbek government to continue support despite protests by antitrust regulator


The Uzbek Antimonopoly Committee, the country’s antitrust regulator, has opposed the latest plans of the government to provide additional support to textile and cotton manufacturers this year owing to non-compliance of the proposed measures with Uzbek antimonopoly legislation.

The proposed support was primarily in the form of tax incentives, which were to be for imports of agricultural machinery and spare parts for cotton clusters, which are operated by Indorama Agro and Pahtakor Tex in the Kashkadarya and Jizzakh regions of Uzbekistan.
