Round table "How to increase trade between Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan".


 More than fifty representatives of state bodies, business associations, trade promotion organizations, and representatives of businesses from Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan will gather together on November 7, 2013 in Termez (Uzbekistan) to discuss how to increase trade between Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.

The forum is organized by the Agro Information Innovation Center of Uzbekistan in partnership with the USAID Regional Economic Cooperation (REC) Project.

In addition to the discussion of issues related to the development of trade relations between these countries, role of trade promotion agencies in this regard, export capacity of the region, proposals on joint cooperation, transport, logistics and supply of goods to/from Afghanistan, the agenda of the forum also includes Business-to-Business meetings of entrepreneurs from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.
Viktor Prodedovich, Chief of Party of the REC Project, notes: “Our Project facilitates trade among Central Asian countries and Afghanistan. This is not the first time when we organize B2B meetings for businessmen. Thus, a recent B2B meeting of Uzbek and Kazakh entrepreneurs  resulted in signing trade contracts for supply of Uzbek horticultural products valued at about $1,5 million and as a result of the trade mission of Kazakh business people to Kabul, Afghan buyers are planning to import Kazakhstani goods valued at more than $7 million. I am sure that this Termez forum will also result in signing trade contracts”.
