Last year, the production of large-capacity polypropylene bags was launched here. These bags, also known as flexible containers, can carry loads between 500 and 5,000 kilograms. They are widely used today in manufacturing, trade, agriculture, and logistics. Sirdaryo Mega Lux is capable of producing 132 million of these containers per year.

The enterprise, consisting of seven buildings, is consistently developing. In May this year, the production of the double-layer film was launched. Production of stretch films and nonwovens using spunbond technology will begin in the coming months.

Currently, more than 2 thousand people work here. When these projects reach their full capacity, the number of jobs will reach 5 thousand.

The company exports its products to 14 countries, including Russia, Israel, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. New projects will serve to increase the volume of exports to $215 million.

The President noted the need for paying special attention not only to the economy, but also to the social efficiency of projects.

“The raw materials for these products are in our homeland. If we use this wisely and ensure a balance between price and quality. Our products will be competitive. It is necessary to deal with not only economic, but also socio-economic projects. Both entrepreneurs and people should receive income”, said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

Instructions were given to double the volume of production and to build housing for workers.

As part of the trip, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited Doniyor Yuldashev’s house, a resident of Shirin mahalla in Syrdarya district, and talked with family members.

The Head of the state highly appreciated the farm and noted that there should be as many such landscaped courtyards as possible throughout the country.

“The purpose of my trips to the regions, my daily efforts are to make people happy with life, to achieve an increase in per capita income. Previously, we sold raw materials abroad. And now we are processing it at home, producing finished products. Companies are opening, our young people, women are getting jobs. The development must take place primarily in the mahalla to expand this phenomenon. If the mahalla is flourishing, then the state will be strong. If we bring up youth as educated people, they will be able to find their way, their business”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
