The EBRD President noted that "we are returning to what was stopped seven years ago. This is an opportunity that we have missed. And we regret very much what happened, that they could not help Uzbekistan to increase its economic potential. What happened was not in the interests of both sides." He informed in detail about the current visit of the representative delegation of the bank to our country, meetings with the head of our state Shavkat Mirziyoyev, heads of ministries and departments, signed Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation between the Republic of Uzbekistan and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
The EBRD head praised the Strategy for further development of our country, stressing that it is a carefully thought out and profound document, all lines of which are consonant with the ideas of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. And therefore the bank will take part in its implementation. "The strategy of action will be a joint strategy of Uzbekistan and the EBRD," S. Chakrabarti underlined.
