The first ministerial meeting «India - Central Asia Dialogue», held in Samarkand in January of this year, made contribution to deepening of ties between the our countries.

The participation of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev in the «9th Dynamic Gujarat International Investment Summit» demonstrated the willingness of both sides to develop mutually beneficial cooperation.

The agreements reached within the framework of the event are now moving into a practical level. The Indian business delegation led by the chief minister of Gujarat province is planning to visit Andijan region to participate in a business forum. In addition, two Indian universities - Shard and Amity opened in Andijan and Tashkent.

According to the Ambassador, Indian business circles are expressing their great interest in implementing investment projects in such sectors of the economy as transport, energy, agriculture, pharmaceutics, ICT etc.
