Construction of a textile training and research technopark has begun within the campus of the Tashkent Institute of Textile and Light Industry, Uzbek media reported.

The project, scheduled to be completed in 2018, is being implemented by Ozbekyengilsanoat Joint Stock Company along with the Korean ministry of commerce, industry and energy.

The setting up of textile technopark will help in development and implementation of international training and research programmes to be implemented in Tashkent Institute of Textile and Light Industry.

It will also enable exchange of experience and advanced technologies, aimed at the development of the textile industry in Uzbekistan.

The technopark will also train Uzbek people in using advanced information and communication technologies, in particular in the field of high value-added products like finished fabrics, sewing and knitted goods.

It will also help in transfer of technological know-how and conducting research in the field of material science, dyeing and finishing plants, and new designs of fabrics and garments.

The project cost for construction and installation works, acquisition and installation of technological equipment is estimated at $15 million, which would be made available under the 'Official Development Assistance' of the Korean government.

As per the draft plan prepared by the Korean side, the technopark will cover over 4,000 sq metres of area. Classrooms, conference rooms, exhibition halls, laboratories, offices and other facilities will be available in the high-tech 3-storey building. The 2-storey building will have weaving, knitting, dyeing, and sewing machines installed.

The setting up of the technopark will help the Uzbek light industry to reach a qualitatively new level of development and improve the training system for the sector, which is one of the main export-oriented industry of the country. (RKS)
