The amount of transactions of the international money transfers system UNIStream in Uzbekistan soared to $280 million in Jul-Sept, a 97 increase compared to the same period of 2007 when the volume of transactions grew to $142 million.
In Jan-July, the system executed transactions worth $603 million, a 126 percent growth against the corresponding period of 2007.
