On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce (AUCC) will participate in the 2014 US-Uzbekistan Annual Business Forum in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. It has become the chamber's well-established tradition to alternate the forum between Washington, DC and Tashkent and allow AUCC members to communicate their business plans directly to the American and Uzbek people. The AUCC delegation will be led by the chamber's Chairperson, Carolyn B. Lamm, and its' President Timothy Y. McGraw. Minister of Foreign Economic Relations, Investments and Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Elyor Ganiev, is expected to represent the Uzbek Government.
"Last year, we were delighted to celebrate the chamber's 20th anniversary which was a major milestone and achievement for our companies and the people of the US and Uzbekistan", said AUCC Chairperson, Carolyn Lamm. "Now that we have entered the new era, our members are inspired to do more. Last year's forum focused on financial instruments available to US exporters and manufacturers. This year's event will hopefully highlight and outline the AUCC companies' specific plans and contracts that can boost the bilateral trade and make the US one of the top three trading and investment partners of Uzbekistan. Addressing our business partners in Tashkent and providing the US companies' assessment and perspective of their ongoing and future scale of business plans is crucial to fostering constructive and dynamic relations. We sincerely hope that our commercial aspirations will continue to be supported by the Governments of the US and Uzbekistan that have both outlined business and commerce as a pillar of their geopolitical agenda".
"We are honored to have the opportunity to travel this year to Uzbekistan and bring the forum to the country which welcomed the majority of our companies some 20 years ago. There is clearly great enthusiasm, optimism and confidence expressed by both sides in the AUCC members' ability to bring more innovative projects and technology, cutting-edge scientific research and groundbreaking exploration works that will benefit the two countries. And in return, our companies are eager to be given the opportunity and to demonstrate that their technologies and expertise are superior to those of the competition", said AUCC President Timothy Y. McGraw.

The chamber is the oldest business group in the US and the Republic of Uzbekistan that exclusively represents interests of US corporations and multinational companies with significant American involvement before the governments of our two countries.
