CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
INVITES UZBEK AMBASSADOR
ILHOM NEMATOV TO VISIT
THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT
The American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce (AUCC) and the US Commercial Service in Hartford, Connecticut are organizing a business program for Uzbek Ambassador Ilhom Nematov and Counselor on Trade and Economic Affairs Laziz Kudratov to visit Connecticut from January 8, 2013 through January 10, 2013. The main purpose of the visit is to enhance bilateral relationships between AUCC members and the Uzbek Government.
This will be the first visit by Uzbek Ambassador Nematov to the Constitution State where he plans to visit Nukem and other AUCC members and participate in the roundtable with members of the local business community organized by Anne Evans and Melissa Grosso of the US Commercial Service in Hartford, CT. The Northeast visit will open a series of AUCC celebratory events planned for 2013 that highlight AUCC 20th anniversary of promoting stronger trade and investment ties between the US and Uzbekistan. The Uzbek Embassy in the United States of America has been an ardent supporter of AUCC members' business operations in Uzbekistan and the successes by AUCC members are partly attributed to the critical role that the Uzbek Embassy played in helping US companies enter the market immediately after Uzbekistan's independence.
The top Uzbek envoy plans to present the country's investment program and highlight projects that are of interest to US exporters and investors. Following the presentation, the Ambassador will have a Questions and Answers session for the companies on the best ways to explore Uzbekistan's business potential and establish contacts with the Uzbek State and private agencies and organizations. Companies interested in participating in the roundtable event should pre-register with AUCC at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 24, 2012. Space is limited.
An AUCC initiative, the visits by the Uzbek Ambassador to our member-companies are aimed at raising the Uzbek Government greater awareness of enormous business and technological potential that US companies have and that can be used to the benefit of the people of Uzbekistan and their efforts to stimulate economic growth, attract foreign investments and create favorable business environment for US companies.
