French textile machinery manufacturers‘ association UCMTF was recently invited by Ilkhom Khaydarov, Uzbek minister in charge of the textile industry and chairman of the board of the state joint-stock company for the light industry ”Uzbekyengilsanoat”, to organize two seminars in Uzbekistan, UCMTF said in a statement.

Christian Guinet and Mrs. Evelyne Cholet, vice-president international and secretary general of UCMTF, led the French delegation of seven companies.

The seminars which were very well attended by the Uzbek textile companies took place in Tashkent and Bukhara. The strategy of UCMTF is to organize such events as close as possible to the textile production centres.

It was not the first time the French machinery manufacturers came to Uzbekistan, they organized a pavilion at CAITME in Tashkent in 2005 (the first foreign pavilion to be organised in the fair) and already held two seminars in the Uzbek capital.

The new 2015 initiative was intended have direct contacts with the Uzbek producers at a turning point of their development. Uzbekistan which has been an historical cotton producer, one of the biggest in the world, is planning to increase the added value of this production thanks to the manufacturing of yarns, fabrics and finished goods. Therefore machinery for spinning, weaving, dyeing and finishing with state-of-the-art technologies and services are needed.

France is the 6th largest textile machinery exporter worldwide and UCMTF claims the French machinery is particularly well suited for the Uzbek cotton industries.

After the seminars the French delegation visited a few textile companies in Tashkent and Bukhara. (SH)
