WASHINGTON, DC – Twenty business leaders from the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce (AUCC) traveled to Tashkent, Uzbekistan during the week of February 14, where they met with high-level officials within the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan in one-on-one meetings tailored to their specific industries. The AUCC delegation was made up of representatives from both returning and new members, including the Boeing Company, Case New Holland, ExxonMobil, General Electric, Honeywell, Nobel Telecom, Nukem, Inc., Sikorsky, White & Case LLP, and Zeppelin International AG. The AUCC mission concurred with Joint Economic Cooperation Meetings held between the U.S. and Uzbekistan governments, also held in Tashkent on February 17 and 18, 2011.
In addition to meetings with officials, AUCC Chair Carolyn B. Lamm presented the 2011 Visionary Award to His Excellency President Islam Karimov in a private meeting at the President’s Oqsaroy residence. Representatives from Boeing and Honeywell also attended the meeting, where the award was presented on behalf of the entire AUCC. The Visionary Award recognized President Karimov for his leadership in transforming the Republic of Uzbekistan into a stable, managed market economy in the years since Uzbekistan gained its independence.
