Turkmen tomatoes are strengthening their positions in foreign markets. In January-March 2024, the volume of their exports increased by 3% compared to the same period in 2023, which indicates a growing demand for Turkmen agricultural products abroad, writes MITZ.

The main importers of Turkmen tomatoes are the Russian Federation, the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Kyrgyz Republic. At the same time, supplies to Kazakhstan showed particularly impressive dynamics — the volume of tomatoes shipped there increased by 20% in the first quarter of 2024.
