President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov at the Oqsaroy on November 11 received the Chairperson of the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce (AUCC) Carolyn Lamm, who arrived in our country to attend an AUCC regular meeting.
The current visit by an impressive mission of US companies and firms is suggestive of a growing interest of the American business to this country and an aspiration for the further enhancement of the bilateral trade-economic and investment cooperation.
Greeting the guest, the head of our state noted that the American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce has been facilitating the development of bilateral ties between Uzbekistan and the United States for as long as twenty years.
As it was reported earlier, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov paid an official visit to Turkmenistan on October 23-24 at the invitation of President Gurbanguly Berdymuhamedov.
The major events of the visit took place October 24. Following an official ceremony of welcoming the guest delegation, the heads of two states held a meeting in a contracted format.
The Uzbek and Turkmen peoples share a common history, similar cultures and values, languages and traditions. The scientific, spiritual-cultural and literary heritage of our ancestors is the joint wealth of the two nations. It can be said without any exaggeration that Alisher Navoi’s works are read and studied in Turkmenistan with a keen interest, while the masterpieces of Makhtumkuli enjoy a matching popularity in Uzbekistan.
