Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE -

On Novem­ber 8, the Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev re­ceived the Gov­er­nor of the city of St. Peters­burg Ge­orgy Poltavchenko, who ar­rived in our coun­try on a work­ing visit.

The Head of our state, wel­com­ing the guest, noted with sat­is­fac­tion that the fruit­ful meet­ings that were held this year at the high­est level and the agree­ments reached on their re­sults, in­clud­ing the In­ter­gov­ern­men­tal Agree­ment on Co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the re­gions of the two coun­tries, signed in April, served to en­hance the prac­ti­cal co­op­er­a­tion of the re­gions of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan with en­ti­ties of the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion, first of all, in trade-eco­nomic and cul­tur­al­hu­man­i­tar­ian spheres.

At the meet­ing, is­sues of fur­ther ex­pan­sion and strength­en­ing of tra­di­tion­ally close and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial re­la­tions of Uzbek­istan with St. Peters­burg were con­sid­ered.

To­day, the trade turnover reaches 200 mil­lion dol­lars. About 1 mil­lion of our cit­i­zens are work­ing in St. Peters­burg. More than 3 thou­sand peo­ple of Uzbek­istan are study­ing in the lead­ing univer­si­ties of this city.

The need to ef­fec­tively use the ex­ist­ing po­ten­tial for in­creas­ing the vol­ume of mu­tual trade and deep­en­ing co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the lead­ing en­ter­prises was em­pha­sized.

Par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion was paid to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of joint pro­grams and projects in the sphere of health­care, ed­u­ca­tion and tourism.

The Gov­er­nor of the city of St. Peters­burg Ge­orgy Poltavchenko ex­pressed sin­cere grat­i­tude to the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try Shavkat Mirziy­oyev for the warm wel­come. He noted the in­ter­est in de­vel­op­ing a fullscale part­ner­ship with Uzbek­istan in pri­or­ity ar­eas.
