Permanent Representative of Uzbekistan meets with WTO Director-General

On July 23, 2019, Permanent Representative of Uzbekistan to the UN Office and other international organizations in Geneva, Ulugbek Lapasov, met with the WTO Director-General, Roberto Azevêdo.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan, at the meeting, views were exchanged on prospects for bilateral cooperation between Uzbekistan and the WTO.

Roberto Azevêdo was handed over the updated Memorandum on the Foreign Trade Regime of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which, according to the head of the organization, marks the beginning of the official negotiation process of the country’s accession to the WTO. It was emphasized that for the first time in 15 years, Uzbekistan has prepared an official document for submission to WTO members, which will become a good basis for the entire negotiation process.

The Director-General also expressed full support for intensification by Uzbekistan of the accession process to the WTO and noted that large-scale reforms implemented under the leadership of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev are a key factor for further development of the country’s foreign policy and foreign economic relations, as well as bringing normative-legal acts in accordance with the norms and regulations of the organization’s agreements.

Roberto Azevêdo assured that representatives of the Secretariat will provide all necessary assistance and support to Uzbekistan in this process, including the successful holding of the next meeting of the Working Group on Uzbekistan’s accession to the WTO in 2019.
