The Uzbek and UK parliaments will soon sign a memorandum of cooperation that could significantly strengthen interparliamentary ties, Chairman of the UK-Uzbekistan All-Party Parliamentary Group, Lord Waverley told the Uzbek Jahon state news agency.
He added that a series of reforms were recently passed in Uzbekistan to improve the parliament's role in society and politics.
"As an MP, I would like to note these reforms, which make MPs active in domestic and public affairs," Waverley said. "We look forward to a mutually beneficial cooperation with our colleagues in Uzbekistan."
He added that there are many prospects for trade and investment cooperation between the two countries with the support of the Uzbek-British Council of Trade and Industry.
"We expect to establish partnerships with new organizations in the UK and to define mutually beneficial directions of activity," Waverley said.
