On March 12, the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev and the Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel will hold an online summit.

As the presidential press service reports, the parties will consider topical issues of further expanding the Uzbek-German multifaceted partnership.

“Particular attention will be paid to the implementation of agreements reached in high-level meetings, the development of a constructive political dialogue, the promotion of joint projects and programs in the trade-economic, investment, financial, technical and cultural-humanitarian spheres,” the statement reads.

In addition, during the talks, an exchange of views will take place on the current international and regional agenda.
