During the visit, a number of meetings took place, including with representatives of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Uzbekistan. The head of the delegation met with Uzbek Minister of Agriculture Aziz Voitov.
“This form of communication is very effective, in my opinion. It is important to find common interests for mutually beneficial cooperation. For our part, we are ready to support any initiatives,” Aziz Voitov said.
During the reciprocal visit of Uzbek colleagues on March 2, a presentation of the Uzbek Republican Commodity and Raw Materials Exchange took place at the South Ural Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
