Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev and Chinese President Xi Jinping signed a joint statement and adopted a programme for the development of a comprehensive strategic partnership in a new era between the Republic of Uzbekistan and the People’s Republic of China for 2023-2027.

The development of a strategic partnership aims to foster closer trade and investment ties between the two countries.

Additionally, the two sides have worked closely together to advance new energy, agriculture, finance, and modern telecommunications, which benefited the public of both countries.

China is not only a ‘global factory” but also a ‘global market’, and Uzbekistan is a global emerging economy; both are maximizing the use of these opportunities and giving full play to the complementary advantages of the two economies.

China and Uzbekistan are very old civilizations, and the historic Silk Road witnessed cordial interactions between the two countries. Both countries share the same goals of playing a constructive and active role to enhance cooperation.

They are also collaborating to take advantage of historical possibilities, advance together on the path of national renewal and development, and put in collaborative efforts in the direction of creating a China-Uzbekistan community with a shared future.

Both countries have ushered in increasing high-level exchanges, mutual peace, increased political trust, and continued mutual support. Promoting fundamental interests is all necessary. China actively participates in Uzbekistan’s reform and development efforts and firmly supports it in its pursuit of a growth path.

The active regional diplomacy of His Excellency Shavkat Miriyoyev has made him a “Regional Statesman”, who is now also known as connectivity man. His vision is not only appreciated by countries around the world and many regional states have joined his mission of developing connectivity.
