President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov at the Oqsaroy on November 11 received the Chairperson of the American-Uzbekistan
Chamber of Commerce (AUCC) Carolyn Lamm, who arrived in our country to attend an AUCC regular meeting.
The current visit by an impressive mission of US companies and firms is suggestive of a growing interest of the American business to this country and an aspiration for the further enhancement of the bilateral trade-economic and investment cooperation.
Greeting the guest, the head of our state noted that the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce has been facilitating the development of bilateral ties between Uzbekistan and the United States for as long as twenty years.
To date, the membership of this nongovernmental nonprofit organization includes seventeen leading American corporations like Boeing, General Motors, General Electric, Honeywell, Rio Tinto, Zeppelin, Lockheed Martin, Merck, White & Case, Solar Turbines, FMN International.
The close cooperation with General Motors has been evolving dynamically, highlighted by three major projects across the nation, covering automotive production in Andijan Region, new-generation engine manufacture in Tashkent Region, and the full-cycle automobile production in Khorezm Region.
Uzbekistan Airways National Company has been successfully operating fifteen modern Boeing airliners that cover more than half of all traffic. Joint schemes are in progress to set up a regional center in Tashkent at the aviation enterprise Uzbekistan Airways Technics for the overhaul of large-size composite elements of aircraft configuration. Similar projects are underway to train highly qualified specialists in the operation and servicing of Boeing airplanes.
Carolyn Lamm expressed sincere gratitude to the head of our state for a warm reception and the comprehensive support for activities of the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce.
Uzbekistan’s President and the AUCC Chairwoman exchanged views on the prospects of bilateral relations in economy and investments.
Toward the end of the conversation, Carolyn Lamm awarded Islam Karimov with Crystal Globe in sign of recognition of Uzbekistan’s promotion as a global business leader.
