Germany and Uzbekistan extend their cooperation in the Manager Training Programme. Claudia Dörr-Voß, Secretary of State in the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), and Sukhrob Kholmuradov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan, signed a declaration to this effect today in Berlin during a meeting on bilateral economic relations. The partners also concluded a Joint Declaration on economic policy advice to the Government of Uzbekistan.

State Secretary Dörr-Voß: “Uzbekistan is already our second most important economic partner in Central Asia after Kazakhstan, but our bilateral economic relations still have great potential. In order to strengthen trade and investment, we provide our entire instrument of foreign trade promotion. With today’s signing of the Joint Declarations on economic policy advice to governments in Uzbekistan and the continuation of cooperation in the Manager Training Programme, we will support Uzbekistan even more. “

Uzbekistan has been a partner of the Manager Training Programme since 2006. Since then, more than 400 Uzbek managers have participated in the programme. The Joint Declaration agrees to continue the program until 2021.
