On January 9 this year, Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Investments and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan Sardor Umurzakov held a meeting with the Executive Director of the US Financial Corporation for International Development (DFC) Adam Bohler.

During the dialogue, the positive dynamics of the development of Uzbek-American relations were noted, achieved through the deepening of trade, economic, and investment cooperation.

The parties welcomed the launch of the initiative "Central Asian Investment Partnership", which was put forward by the Uzbek side during the visit of the head of DFC A. Bohler to Tashkent in July 2020.

This initiative, which provides for the mobilization of at least $ 1 billion, will become a tool to stimulate the growth of inclusive, transparent, and sustainable investments through the implementation of projects in various sectors of the Uzbek economy.

During the negotiations, the sides agreed on financing specific projects in the fields of energy, infrastructure, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, as well as agriculture.

They also discussed issues of joint implementation of the regional project for the construction of the Mazar-i-Sharif - Kabul - Peshawar railway. The foreign side highly appreciated the significance of the project in strengthening transport and communication links between South and Central Asia and the sustainable development of the countries of the region.

During the negotiations, an agreement was reached to send a permanent representative of DFC to Tashkent to promote the implementation of joint projects and initiatives, develop new areas of cooperation, as well as coordinate DFC's partnership with the countries of the Central Asian region.

In order to organize systemic interaction to ensure the implementation of the agreements reached, the parties decided to develop and adopt a joint "Roadmap" for the earliest possible implementation of the agreements and agreed projects.
