Europe is ready: unique products from the Orient


Thanks to good climatic conditions, Uzbek agriculture can produce outstanding products. Now is the time to make the local natural ingredients available to the many interested buyers throughout Europe. European importers highly demand these products:

  • Dried and freeze-dried fruits and vegetables
  • Essential oils and extracts as well as medicinal and aromatic plants
  • Legumes, e.g. chickpeas, mung beans or beans

Uzbekistan is also an attractive destination for European tourists because of its more than 4,000 historical sites, including Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva and Shahrisabz, as well as the fascinating culture of the Orient. Europeans are also eager to discover the diverse landscape with mountain passes, valleys and deserts.
European tour operators are therefore constantly looking for sustainable offers.

  • Cultural and study tours along the Silk Road - combined with bird watching and camel rides
  • Hiking, trekking, mountaineering tours or rafting and kayaking offers

Regardless of whether you want to export natural ingredients or market your tourist offer in Europe, IPD supports you. 


  • Targeted procurement of suitable partners in Europe
  • Intensive preparation for your market entry
  • Networking at European trade fairs, virtual b2b events, FAM trips or selling missions
