James Moran: Uzbekistan will become a shining star in the world stage!

A well-known American politician, member of the US House of Representatives James Patrick Moran in an interview with a correspondent of Uzbekistan Today expressed his opinion on the current visit of the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev to the United States, as well as the prospects for cooperation between our countries.

- Shavkat Mirziyoyev's visit to the US is a landmark event for strengthening the relations between the two states. What do you think of it?

- This visit is historic. Uzbekistan plays an important role in Afghanistan and in this regard should be considered as an ally of the United States. With this visit, very many people in the United States will learn more about your country, about the progress of a young independent republic in economy, culture and social life. But this is only the first step.

For example, I believe that Uzbekistan will become the main tourist "mecca" for Americans. Your state is one of the most famous, historic places in the world, your ancestors played an important role in the development of human civilization. And when Americans and Europeans learn more about the history of Uzbekistan, they will certainly want to go there on a journey. And tourism will help the economy of the republic. And after for travelers and tourists, our businessmen who want to conduct business with you will be drawn to you. The economy, international trade will also raise the standard of living of the population of Uzbekistan. And this is what President Mirziyoyev will talk with President Trump.

- You mentioned Afghanistan. What is your opinion on the initiatives voiced by our country during the Tashkent conference on Afghanistan?

- The Tashkent conference is a great progress in the development of the situation in the region. She planted regional players at one table and encouraged even greater cooperation in the peace process.

Afghanistan must be an ally of both Uzbekistan and the United States. President Mirziyoyev carries out very important activities with his peace initiatives. Together with the President of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani, they are interested in combating extremism, which has generated so many problems in this country. I think that Uzbekistan can become the main force in efforts to create a long-awaited peace in Afghanistan. I am sure that during this visit the United States will listen attentively to the opinion of Uzbek politicians - Kamilov, Senator Safaev, and many others who can inform American officials how to better agree with Afghanistan and bring peace and prosperity to this part of our planet.

- Could, in your opinion, noticeably increase US investment in our country in the near future?

- Hope so. Shavkat Mirziyoyev does everything possible for the American business community to invest in the future of Uzbekistan. I also think that representatives of American corporations will listen attentively to the fact that the President of Uzbekistan will not only tell the US President during the talks, but also American businessmen during his visit to the United States.

It is clear that American corporations want to invest where they can get money and where favorable conditions for doing business. I am sure that there are such conditions in your republic. In Uzbekistan, a very hard-working people, specialists and workers are literate and well educated. When American businessmen realize this, as well as the fact that Uzbekistan has a bright future, they will want to take part in its creation and start investing their money.

In this regard, I would like to say about cooperation with the Ministry of Justice of Uzbekistan, thanks to which an international law firm, where I am currently working, I discussed the signing of a memorandum of understanding. This document will help to train judges and lawyers in Uzbekistan on the Western legal system. And thus, Uzbekistan will be able to assure the American and European business community that compliance with the rule of law will be consistent with their system, that the legal norms in Uzbekistan will meet the expectations of international corporations. This will give even greater confidence to investors and large multinational corporations that they can safely invest in Uzbekistan.

- Are you sure that President Mirziyoyev's visit will open a new Uzbekistan for the Americans?

- I'm sure of it! President Shavkat Mirziyoyev is now the face of Uzbekistan. Anyone who listens to what he says, feels that he can trust him. And to trust his message that Uzbekistan wants to be an ally of the United States, and that both countries have a bright future. I do not doubt that Shavkat Mirziyoyev's visit will be a very important milestone in the history of Uzbekistan in the 21st century.

In general, I sincerely believe that, despite the great distance that separates us, we must consider ourselves neighbors and friends.
In conclusion, I would like to emphasize that your country under the leadership of President Mirziyoyev will be able to set standards for all other post-Soviet states in terms of economic prosperity, social progress and technological development.
I hope that Uzbekistan will become one of the shining stars on the world stage.
