1 July 2013

The delegation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Australia headed by Ambassador William Fischer and representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan discussed topical issues of international and regional affairs on Monday, the Foreign Ministry of Uzbekistan said.

During the meeting, the sides exchanged views on further expanding cooperation in various specific areas of mutual interest.

Despite the geographical distance, Uzbekistan and Australia have expressed mutual interest in deepening cooperation all-around, particularly with regards to trade, the economy and investment.

Uzbekistan is interested in bringing modern Australian practices and technologies to its agricultural sector, as well as energy saving technology, equipment production as well as projects within the Navoi Free Industrial-Trade Zone (FITZ).

Currently, there are ten enterprises backed by Australian capital in Uzbekistan, including three enterprises fully owned by Australian capital that work in agriculture, mediation, perfumes, cosmetics and textiles.
