On July 4, the Prime Minister Abdulla Aripov hosted the French business delegation of MEDEF International. According to the Prime Minister's press service, the parties discussed the ways to advance cooperation in trade, economic, investment, energy, transport, infrastructure and a number of other areas.
France is one of the most important partners of Uzbekistan in EU. The two countries are actively cooperating in many areas that are beneficial to both parties. The official visit of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev to France in 2018 opened a new page in the history of bilateral relations and brought them to a higher level.
Currently, about 50 French-invested enterprises are successfully operating in Uzbekistan, the likes of Suez, EDF, Airbus, Orano, Total.
During the meeting, the parties pointed to the need to reach specific agreements on the implementation of joint projects, as well as to develop long-term cooperation at a high pace.
