The Trade and Investment Committee welcomes all AmCham members, diplomatic/government representatives, and members of the development community with an interest in a healthy and growing business environment in Uzbekistan to participate in our committee meetings. We meet monthly to discuss current events affecting the T&I climate in Uzbekistan and ways the committee can assist market participants and new entrants to succeed.

The T&I Committee has had an active start in 2016, facilitating the Executive U.S. Trade Mission to Uzbekistan and organizing the U.S.- Uzbek Business Roundtable. The roundtable was sponsored by the Uzbekistan Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations, Investment and Trade, US Commercial Service, US Embassy in Tashkent, the American Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce and the American Chamber of Commerce in Uzbekistan based in Tashkent. More than 30 delegates from 13 US companies participated in the roundtable – which included presentations from Uzinfoinvest, the Ministry of Health, leaders of the Uzbekistan Pharmaceutical Industry and local business leaders. The presentations were followed by a lively question and answer session that proved very informative for the visiting delegates. The delegates also had opportunities to meet with representatives from the Uzbekistan government, US Embassy, AmCham and potential local business partners and agents. Feedback from the roundtable has been very positive and a future roundtable is already being planned.

In the past the Trade and Investment Committee has been involved in discussions regarding possible changes to customs policy, improvements to the legal framework for trade, international arbitration, business related projects by development organizations and more. Committee meetings are held on a rotating basis at various AmCham member locations around Tashkent. You may contact the AmCham office or visit our calendar to find details about our upcoming meetings.
