The message reads, in part:
“Central Asia has rich natural resources and an immense human potential. Regional economic cooperation processes are demonstrating very high dynamics. Indicative in this regard is the speed at which interaction between the host countries, Russia and Uzbekistan, is developing: their bilateral trade grew by more than a quarter last year.
The INNOPROM. Central Asia Fair is being held in the hospitable city of Tashkent with the participation of representatives of business circles, government agencies and expert communities from many countries. The main displays are dedicated to innovations in areas such as mechanical engineering, metallurgy, power generation and information technology.
I am confident that during the fair you will be able to exchange experience you have amassed, discuss current issues related to cooperation in trade, the economy, industry and investment, outline mutually beneficial joint projects and establish new partner ties.”
