2014 Opens a New Era for the Chamber

Since 1993 the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce has been at the forefront of advancing trade and business relations between the US and the Republic of Uzbekistan. AUCC prides itself in catering to the needs of our members, providing them with a platform to interact with policy makers in the US and the Republic of Uzbekistan and ensuring that bilateral commercial relations continue to be on the governments' top agenda.   

 

For the last twenty years AUCC has been a vigorous advocate of the views of the business community to ensure that private sector positions are considered during the development of policies that impact American businesses and the future of U.S.-Uzbekistan relations.  While 2013 concluded our celebrations for the 20th anniversary it also opened a new era for the chamber and our members.

 

We are delighted that today AUCC is a well-known organization that is recognized for its strength and ability to work closely with a great number of partner organizations. AUCC enjoys excellent working relations with the Embassy of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Washington, D.C., the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Uzbek ministries, associations and organizations as well as the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. AUCC also coordinates its efforts with a great number of international financial institutions, business councils and other professional organizations.

We thank you all for your support and engagement and look forward to another year of progress and business successes. 

If your company is interested in joining AUCC, please contact our office at 202-509-3744 or [email protected]  We invite you to be part of our organization and participate in our activities and events.

Hear from the Ambassador of Uzbekistan about export opportunities for U.S. companies in the ag-processing, machinery, and energy sectors. Organized jointly by the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce, US Commercial Service, and the Trade Development Alliance of Greater Seattle, this will serve as the first-time opportunity for the top diplomatic envoy to present Uzbekistan's 2014 investment projects and invite them to "Uzbekistan Agrominitech Expo 2014" to be held on May-27-30, 2014 in Tashkent.

Located in the heart of Central Asia, Uzbekistan is home to almost 30 million people, has rich natural resources base and enjoys a GDP growth of 8%. The country's established infrastructure and well-skilled workforce are an attraction to U.S. companies. AUCC members are currently negotiating contracts and projects, which, if implemented, will total about $4 billion invested in the next 2-3 years. During the period of 1992 to 2012 U.S. exports to the Republic of Uzbekistan amounted to more than $3.3 billion and American companies have invested more than $500 million in the Uzbek economy. In 2012 the US exports to Uzbekistan totaled more than $285 million compared to $100 million in 2011 and $101 million in 2010.  Famous for its high-quality agricultural produce, today Uzbekistan is offering incentives for US food processing and packaging companies to exhibit their machinery in May in Uzbekistan. Please join our discussion with H.E. Ambassador Bakhtiyar Gulyamov, on the opportunities for bilateral business cooperation and presentation of incentives for US companies to participate in Agrominitech Expo 2014, specifically:

  

-provision of exhibition space at no cost;
