Business forum was held in Tashkent, BTSO Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors İsmail Kuş said. According to him, Turkey and Uzbekistan had taken important steps to advance cooperation, including in the economic area.
“Turkey and Uzbekistan should also maintain close ties in the business sector. Over the past 6 years, BTSO delegations have visited 14 countries. The more contacts, the more benefits. Thanks to established contacts, we have turned Bursa into a world leader in the children's textile industry. This sets an example for other industries. I am sure that in the near future the volume of trade with Uzbekistan will increase,” Kuş said.
Alican Aksoy, adviser to the Turkish Embassy in Tashkent, highly valued the reform program of the leadership of Uzbekistan.
“Economic ties have always been no less important than political ones. It is very important. We see how important it is to support business. Textile occupies an important place in the economy of Uzbekistan. Turkish companies, in turn, invest in Uzbek textiles. Our duty is to support you,” Aksoy said.
