Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan Gayrat Fozilov held talks with the State Secretary of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany Jochen Flasbarth, in Berlin, reports “Dunyo” IA correspondent.
The coordination of promising areas of financial and technical cooperation, as well as comprehensive support provided by the Government of Germany to Uzbekistan through the implementation of various projects in the social and economic spheres, became key issues of the talks.
Under the New Strategy 2030 of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Uzbekistan has been identified as the only partner country in the Central Asian region.
The German side expressed readiness to further enhance cooperation aimed at implementing socially significant projects in the country, in particular in the areas of vocational education, lending to small and medium-sized businesses, creating new jobs, improving energy efficiency and the healthcare system. Priority attention will be paid to cooperation in the environmental sphere, including assistance in improving the situation in the Aral Sea region.
Following the meeting, an agreement was reached to hold regular intergovernmental consultations and negotiations on financial and technical cooperation in 2022, during which new programs and projects for joint implementation in Uzbekistan will be agreed upon.
