On July 18, a government delegation of Georgia headed by Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili arrived in Tashkent. At the airport, the distinguished guest was met by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan Abdulla Aripov, Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Investments and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan Jamshid Khodjaev and other officials.
The program of the visit began with a visit to the Yangi Uzbekiston park, where I. Garibashvili laid flowers at the Independence Monument, as a tribute to the depth of history and bright modernity of Uzbekistan.
The next on the delegation’s route was Technopark, where the guests got acquainted with the production process and the range of localized high-tech products.
In terms of economic relations, it is worth noting that there is a free trade regime between the countries. Uzbekistan supplies Georgia mainly with industrial goods, chemical products, beverages, cars and transport equipment. Georgia, in turn, imports pharmaceutical products, transport equipment, food products and other items. On the territory of Uzbekistan, there are 69 enterprises with the participation of the Georgian capital. In Georgia, there are 23 enterprises with the participation of Uzbek investments. Trade between the countries has grown by 34.3% since 2017, reaching $127.4 million. But this, as noted, is far from the limit, the countries have a mutual desire, and hence a real opportunity to achieve much greater results.
When visiting the Technopark, which unites 17 modern, export-oriented and import-substituting industries, the Prime Minister of Georgia drew attention to the huge investment and industrial potential of Uzbekistan, in light of which the priority of bilateral partnership today remains to build up direct contacts between the business circles of the two countries in order to develop and implementation of new joint projects.
