"The recent visit of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan gave a new impetus to the relations between our countries, an agreement on interregional cooperation was signed", - said Ambassador Ikrom Nazarov. "Very great relationships have been between Kazakhstani and Uzbek partners".
According to Ikrom Nazarov, last year the country raised 18 million tons of green products. By 2020, Uzbekistan intends to increase volumes to 25 million tons. The East Kazakhstan region is considered as a potential market.
