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.

The Uzbek Embassy has kindly agreed to share their presentation on the country's business potential with US companies interested in the roundtable to be held in Milwaukee, WI on May 14, 2014 (see details below).
The Embassy would like to encourage potential participants of the roundtable to review their presentation and email specific questions in advance of the event.
It is hoped that such format will promote stronger engagement between the Uzbek Embassy and US companies prior to the event as well as allow WI-based companies to better understand the market potential and help the Embassy representatives focus their presentation on companies' specific issues of interest.
