On August 21, U.S. Embassy Tashkent will host a Direct Line to American Business video conference call. The call will explore and develop opportunities for both Uzbek and U.S. businesses in the food processing and packaging industries.
Direct Line provides an open medium for facilitating interactions between U.S. suppliers and Uzbek companies searching for ways to improve their competitiveness and profitability.
The Direct Line call will be hosted by U.S. Ambassador George Krol, with the participation of representatives of Uzbekistan's food processing and packaging industries and members of the AmCham Uzbekistan Trade and Investment Committee.
The Direct Line call will give U.S. industry experts the opportunity to learn the needs of their potential Uzbek clients and become acquainted in advance of travel by a group of Uzbek companies to the PackExpo 2013 exposition in Las Vegas from September 23-25. The Uzbek participants hope to share their needs with vendors of food processing and packaging equipment to better prepare them for their travel to the U.S. and to make arrangements for equipment demonstrations, factory visits, and meetings with representatives of financial and logistics organizations while they are in the U.S. The Uzbek participants have been vetted to include only representatives of companies with a stated interest in purchasing U.S. equipment. Additionally, U.S. manufacturers of food processing and packaging equipment interested in displaying their equipment in a state-of-the-art facility in Tashkent will have an opportunity to inquire about this possibility.
Attendees in the U.S. will be able to join the event as a group through the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce (AUCC) in Washington, DC. Participants will be able to view the live presentation and participate in the call via text-input.
