Issues of cooperation between Uzbekistan and the EU on the application of “GSP +” preferences were discussed

In Brussels, within the framework of the participation of the delegation of Uzbekistan in the 9th round of negotiations on the draft Agreement on Expanded Partnership and Cooperation (EPCA) between the Republic of Uzbekistan and the European Union, a meeting was held between the Deputy Minister of Investment and Foreign Trade Republic of Uzbekistan B. Abidov with Director for Sustainable Development and Economic Partnership Agreements of the Directorate General for Trade of the European Commission E. Zinoviec.

The issues of application of preferences of the General System of Preferences of the EU “GSP +” in Uzbekistan and the prospects for bilateral interaction with the European Union within the framework of this mechanism were discussed.

It was noted that Uzbekistan attaches particular importance to further strengthening bilateral trade, economic and investment cooperation with the countries of the European Union, including within the framework of the “GSP +” system, which creates a solid foundation for the diversification and sustainable growth of Uzbekistan’s foreign trade with the EU countries.

Following the talks, the parties agreed on practical cooperation to implement joint initiatives to support entrepreneurs in the effective use of the advantages of the EU’s Generalized System of Preferences “GSP +”.
