At the main and oldest stock exchange of the USA - the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), a meeting was held with the Vice Chairman and Chief Commercial Officer of the Stock Exchange John Tuttle.
The main subject of the talks was cooperation on the development of Uzbekistan’s capital market and a discussion of the prospects for the state companies and privatized enterprises from the most profitable and large corporations to be brought to the US stock market.
