Uzbekistan's Artel to open refrigerator factory in Dushanbe
DUSHANBE -- Artel, an Uzbek home appliance and electronics company, plans to open a refrigerator factory in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, AKIpress reported Wednesday (February 13).
Artel refrigerators have gained popularity among Tajiks since they became available on the market a few years ago, said Farruh Hamralizoda, chairman of Tajikistan's Investment and Property Management Committee.
In 2018, Uzbek businesses invested more than $5.3 billion in Tajikistan, mainly in agriculture and poultry raising, according to official data.
Last September, a joint venture between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan began manufacturing Artel washing machines in Osh, Kyrgyzstan.
