President of our country Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited a plant on coal briquette production under the joint-stock company “O’zbekiston temir yo’llari” in Pop district.

The energy industry of our country is consistently developing. Energy sources are being diversified. Measures are being taken on providing population and organizations with several types of energy.

A new coal industry enterprise was put into operation in Pop district with a project cost of 7 million dollars. 500 thousand tons of coal briquettes will be produced here each year. 160 new workplaces are created at the enterprise.
