The President of Uzbekistan will open new facets of cooperation in all spheres of bilateral relations for Tashkent and Riyadh
LONDON, 18 August. /IA “Dunyo”/. The Chairman of Pairstech/Aleph Finance/Chapterhouse Capital London UK (Great Britain) Waheed Qaiser shared his comments on the visit of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev to Saudi Arabia with Dunyo news agency:
– The state visit of the President of Uzbekistan to Saudi Arabia is an excellent opportunity to discuss the potential for cooperation in such sectors as high technology, innovation, entrepreneurship and the green economy.
Combining the efforts of both states into a single strategy can bring significant economic and social benefits not only for Uzbekistan and Saudi Arabia, but also internationally.
I hope that the parties will also be able to agree on joint efforts to address issues such as climate change, public health and biodiversity conservation. These directions will not only strengthen trade and economic relations and investment interaction between Muslim countries, but will also allow the exchange of views on the problem of Islamophobia faced by Muslim communities in various regions of the world.
There is potential to increase linkages in agriculture, including through the creation of many jobs. Uzbekistan is widely known all over the world for its fresh fruits, vegetables and dried fruits of the highest quality, and, of course, the people of Saudi Arabia would like to see Uzbek products on the shelves of their stores all year round.
Another significant direction could be the establishment of pilgrimage tourism from Saudi Arabia to Uzbekistan, where world-famous scientists lived – Imam al-Bukhari, Imam Moturudi, Ibn Sina and others. Moreover, Uzbekistan is ready to create favorable conditions for Saudi foreign direct investment by providing attractive tax incentives.
The first visit of the leader of Uzbekistan to Saudi Arabia over the past 30 years will undoubtedly open up new facets of cooperation in all areas of bilateral relations for Tashkent and Riyadh.
