The volume of onion exports from Uzbekistan to Turkmenistan has increased ten-fold times over the past few years. Possibly, the final volume of 2021 may exceed the record volume of the last years, and the share of Turkmenistan in the total volume of onion exports from Uzbekistan will increase by 150 percent.
The annual export volume of onions from Uzbekistan to Turkmenistan increased from 1,800 to 18.700 tons from 2017 to 2019. EastFruit estimates do explain how the volume of onion exports from Uzbekistan to Turkmenistan exceeded 19,000 tons from early January to mid-October 2021, which is the highest figure for 2017-2021.
The share of Turkmenistan in the total export of Uzbek onions ranged from 5% to 7% in 2017-2020, but in nine months of 2021 it reached 9.2%.
