The Ambassador of Uzbekistan to the United States, Javlon Vakhabov, met with Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, Dunyo news agency reported.

The course of implementation of the agreements on expanding trade and investment cooperation reached during the visit of the state delegation to Uzbekistan in May 2019 was discussed.

The meeting was also attended by the head of the Governor’s Administration, Joy Song, Mississippi Senator Joel Carter, the president of AMS Services engineering company Andy Brohead and his deputies.

The governor emphasized that Uzbekistan is a fast-growing country in the world with advanced economic transformations, including in the construction industry, and there are many similarities between the state of Mississippi and Uzbekistan, primarily the advanced textile and cotton industry.

The head of state thanked for the visit of the governor of Zarafshan to Clinton for 10-14 November, which is a logical continuation of the practical implementation of the Agreement on the establishment of twinning relations between these cities. Phil Bryant said he was pleased to hear of the planned Mayor of Clinton’s visit to Uzbekistan with business and academia in May 2020.

Director of AMS Services Andy Brohead praised the ongoing reforms in the republic and stated his readiness to implement joint investment projects in Uzbekistan for the construction and modernization of railways, as well as the management and treatment of wastewater for reuse in agriculture and industry. An agreement was reached on organizing a visit of the AMS Services delegation to Uzbekistan to conduct negotiations with ministries and departments in order to determine specific areas of cooperation and investment projects.

Governor Phil Bryant expressed his readiness to personally speak with representatives of leading logistics companies and UPS and FedEX mailing and goods delivery services in order to attract them to the development of the Navoi International Intermodal Logistics Center, which, according to him, has great potential to become a major “dry port” in the region.
