According to spokespeople from the Ministry of Agriculture of the Kyrgyz Republic, increasing the exports of fruits and vegetables to China may become a potential source of growth in the country's gross domestic product (GDP) and a segment of the Russian market.
An increase in the volume of these exports can significantly accelerate economic growth in exporting countries, create jobs, strengthen the material and technical base and increase the level of income in rural areas. Also, it will enable smallholder farmers to be included in the creation of the value chain.
It is noted that within the framework of the World Bank's Economic Development of Regions Project in Osh oblast and Osh city implemented by ARIS, a value chain will be created and developed in the cultivation of fruits, berries and vegetables. As a result, the development of intensive horticulture, the development of greenhouses is expected using innovative resource-saving technologies with the use of advanced technologies that contribute to increasing the processing and export potential of agricultural products.
