According to him, it is extremely important to continue the course for an active, balanced and constructive foreign policy, ensuring the growth of the political authority and role of Uzbekistan in the region and the world. 

“In the coming years, Uzbekistan will strengthen relations of friendship, good neighborliness and strategic partnership with the countries of Central Asia in all spheres, putting forward new regional initiatives in the “Central Asian spirit”,” Arziyev said.

Today’s realities require the formation of a new model of economic cooperation in Central Asia, identifying new points of growth and development drivers for the long term, he stressed.

“The plans for the development of the regional policy of our country include building up intraregional trade, industrial cooperation, interaction in the fields of investment, innovation and digital technologies, interregional cooperation, as well as the implementation of the transport and transit potential of the region. An extensive and integrated transport system can become a key transit hub on the Eurasian continent,” Arziyev added.
