TASHKENT (UzReport) — The Finance Ministry of Uzbekistan has published a draft resolution on the revision of the minimum prices for alcoholic beverages.

According to the document, the minimum wholesale and retail prices for 1 litre of finished products for producers are proposed to be set as follows:

  • Wine: 11200-13200 soums (currently 9400-11200 soums);
  • Cognac: 41200-49400 soums (currently 33000-39000 soums);
  • Vodka and other alcoholic beverages: 28600-34400 soums (currently 24000-28500 soums).

Beer will not be affected by the increase.

In 2019, the government took legislative measures in the interest of creating a fundamental change in the system of control and regulation of alcoholic beverages, as well as the development of viticulture and winemaking. A Presidential decree entitled About Measures for Enhancement of Regulation of Production and Turnover of Alcoholic and Tobacco Products, and also Development of Wine Growing and Winemaking was then adopted, giving further impetus to efforts to improve Uzbekistan’s wine industry and alcoholic drinks sales.
