TASHKENT (Reuters) - Uzbek state-owned carmaker Uzavtosanoat and the Russian subsidiary of Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) agreed on Wednesday to build a plant in the Central Asian nation that will produce light commercial vehicles, Uzavtosanoat said.

The planned facility in the Jizzakh province will produce 20,000 vehicles a year, it said in a statement, without disclosing any financial details of the deal.

Uzavtosanoat inked a similar deal with Peugeot Citroen (PEUP.PA) in 2017, but the project has not yet been implemented.
