Kyrgyzstan's Minister of Agriculture Nurbek Murashev spoke about some issues of trade and economic cooperation, which were discussed at a meeting of the Council of Heads of the Border regions of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan in the city of Osh.

"We had problems with the export of potatoes from Kyrgyzstan to Uzbekistan. Today we discussed and resolved this issue. The Uzbek side provided us with a list of 45 organizations, which can grow to 70 organizations. There will be no problems with the sale of Kyrgyz potatoes to Uzbekistan. At the moment, we have decided to buy agricultural equipment from Uzbekistan", - noted Kyrgyz Minister.

In addition, an agreement was reached that Uzbekistan will purchase products from cement plants located in southern Kyrgyzstan.

Recall, the Council of Heads of the Border Regions of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan was established in September 2017 in accordance with the Agreement signed during the state visit of the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyayev to Kyrgyzstan.
