The organizers are the Ministry of Investments and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
“Uzbekistan and Russia are implementing a large package of joint projects in various fields. The success of cooperation is confirmed by the fact that, despite the pandemic, the trade turnover between our countries in 2020 amounted to about $6 billion. We plan to increase this amount to $10 billion. The industrial exhibition will become an excellent platform for the formation of new cooperation projects and the signing of mutually beneficial contracts and agreements”, said Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Investments and Foreign Trade of Uzbekistan Sardor Umurzakov.
In turn, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov emphasized that Uzbekistan is not just one of the important trade and economic partners for Russia, but a strategic partner with which Russian companies are already creating and will jointly implement large cooperation projects in various sectors of the economy.
