Commercial Message from Ambassador Spratlen
Welcome to our site dedicated to furthering the economic and commercial relationship between Uzbekistan and the United States!
Uzbekistan possesses a wealth of natural resources, including natural gas, gold, other minerals, cotton, fresh fruits and vegetables, and a history as the scientific and industrial hub of Central Asia. In the years since Uzbekistan’s independence, U.S. companies have worked through unique features of the country’s economy to find success here offering new technologies and opportunities for the people of Uzbekistan. American planes carry people to and from Uzbekistan every day. American cars – manufactured in Uzbekistan – can be seen everywhere throughout the country. American food products are popular items on store shelves.
The U.S. Embassy in Tashkent actively seeks to further develop and strengthen commercial ties between our countries. Just as we are proud of the appreciation people in Uzbekistan show toward U.S. products and business innovations, we are hopeful that Uzbek companies might be able to forge new partnerships with American firms in order to build the economy of Uzbekistan.
The Embassy’s Economic Section, along with other commercial agencies of the United States government, can offer a variety of services to assist companies from both countries in expanding economic ties. This includes providing information to American companies that wish to explore the potential of Uzbekistan’s markets. In this section of our website, you will find information about Uzbekistan’s economy and business climate, as well as resources for American businesses interested in new outreach and trade opportunities. You will also find information for companies from outside the United States that are interested in doing business there.
We are proud of the economic cooperation and mutual respect that characterize the relationship between the people of Uzbekistan and the United States. Together, we can continue to build on our common interests by promoting and developing trade and investment opportunities that will bring significant, long-term benefits to both countries.
Thank you for your interest in doing business in – and with – Uzbekistan!
Pamela L. Spratlen,
U.S. Ambassador to Uzbekistan
