Within the framework of the exhibition, a round table “Uzbekistan-Russia: developing mutually beneficial cooperation in agriculture” was held, in which representatives of Russian companies, Uzbek state and public structures, as well as participants and visitors of the exhibition took part.
At the panel discussion “Practical application of innovative technologies of Germany in agriculture of Uzbekistan”, investment programs were also discussed with Bulat Khamidov.
“We have many innovative projects in the development of technologies in agriculture, but the main thing is for the consumer to remember that technology is only an auxiliary element that helps to achieve results, but the most important is a farmer working on the land”, said Harald Braungardt, Managing Director of Step Systems GmbH, Germany
“Agricultural companies should not work harder, but smarter – this is the rule of the 21st century. It is very important to establish a management system in agricultural companies. Visit local companies in the regions of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which have already successfully introduced innovative technologies into their production, found their application in their regions and established a management system,” emphasized Umid Sayfudinov, a specialist in the development of a value chain in agriculture, USAID agribusiness development project in Uzbekistan.
