UZBEK DELEGATION HOLDS NEGOTIATIONS IN GENEVA

Recently, a delegation of Uzbekistan led by Deputy Minister of Investments and Foreign Trade B. Abidov visited Switzerland to participate in the Regional Forum on Sustainable Development. During the visit, our representatives also held a number of meetings and negotiations.

Thus, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), O. Algayerova, discussed the possibility of establishing cooperation in various areas, including through the Multi-Partner Trust Fund for Human Security in the Aral Sea region. In particular, the Uzbek side provided information about the goals and program strategy of the fund, as well as the negative environmental situation and its negative impact on the health of the population of the region.

For her part, O. Agalarova expressed the opinion that more active participation of Uzbekistan in Commission projects aimed at strengthening and developing innovation activities, creating favorable conditions for the development of foreign trade, as well as strengthening the export potential of Uzbek enterprises by strengthening foreign trade relations with foreign countries, in first of all, neighboring states.

Another promising area was the development of public-private partnerships, the introduction of best practices for implementing PPP projects, primarily in the field of waste disposal and recycling, management of social and physical infrastructure, renewable energy and the operation of the utility system.

The Executive Secretary of the ECE stated that the Commission closely and with great interest follows the reforms implemented by the leadership of our country. The steps to strengthen the cooperation of Uzbekistan with neighboring countries were particularly noted. According to O. Algayerova, such a policy will contribute to strengthening the role and importance of the republic not only in the region, but throughout the CIS as well.

Following the talks, the parties agreed on the organization of the visit of O. Algayerova to Uzbekistan in the near future.

Another meeting was held with the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. T. Gebreyesus. It also discussed the possibility of establishing cooperation within the framework of the Multi-Partner Trust Fund for Human Security in the Aral Sea region. Information about the measures taken by the republic’s leadership to protect public health in the Aral Sea region aroused particular interest among the interlocutor. The head of WHO highly appreciated the results of the reforms in the healthcare system of Uzbekistan, noting that such success in a short period would have been impossible without the firm political will and the direct involvement of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

In this context, T. Gebreyesus spoke in favor of developing comprehensive cooperation between Uzbekistan and WHO in areas of mutual interest.

Following the meeting, an agreement was reached on exploring the possibility of Uzbekistan signing an Administrative Agreement with the UN Headquarters for WHO to join the ITPF Management Committee.
