Anadolu Group CEO Burak Başarır spoke about the cooperation of the companies of the two countries:

"To date, Anadolu Group has managed to find more than 500 million US dollars of investment in the economy of Uzbekistan, and this is a significant investment compared to the previous years. Rather, it is an expression of our 100% confidence in the people, government, talent and business environment of Uzbekistan.

As a continuation of the cooperation between the companies, we are also determined to create a plant with a new modern infrastructure in Namangan. I think that our work is a clear evidence of our full confidence in the Uzbek people, government and the whole country.
