An exhibition of Uzbek national products “Made in Uzbekistan” and a joint business forum will be held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan in the first half of March 2018, the Foreign Trade Ministry of Uzbekistan said in a message.
The expo is aimed at familiarizing the representatives of the business circles of Tajikistan with products, manufactured in Uzbekistan, and promoting the supply of domestic goods and services to the Tajik market.
The exhibition will present products of automotive, agricultural, food, light, pharmaceutical, chemical, oil and gas, metallurgy and electrical industries, as well as construction materials and samples of craftsmanship in Uzbekistan.
Within the business forum, it is planned to hold presentations of investment potentials of countries and organize B2B and B2G meetings.
Previously, within the framework of organized mutual national exhibitions in Dushanbe and Tashkent, a package of trade documents worth over $00 million was signed.
Currently, Uzbek banks consider providing credit lines to Tajik banks to finance purchase of the Uzbek-made products. It is expected that this will significantly increase business activity between the two countries in the shortest possible time.
