Indonesia recognized the independence of Uzbekistan in December 1991. The diplomatic relations were established in June 1992.
At present, the relations are governed by more than 20 bilateral intergovernmental documents. The basic principles of the Uzbek-Indonesian relations were fixed in the Joint Statement (1992) and the Joint Declaration on the Principles of Relations and Cooperation (1995).
The mutual trade is limited by a small range of goods and services. It does not meet the available economic opportunities of both countries.
