Initiatives of the President of Uzbekistan are designed to increase the strategic attractiveness of Central Asia

BEIJING, August 7. /«Dunyo» IA/. Assistant Researcher at the Institute of Russian, Eastern European and Central Asian Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Liu Chang commented on the results of the Trilateral Summit of the leaders of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan, held on August 4 in Ashgabat.

– In recent years, the Central Asian countries have been actively cooperating to ensure regional security and development. A striking example of this is the trilateral meeting of Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan heads in Ashgabat.

In this context, the role of Uzbekistan, which initiated the Consultative Meetings of the Heads of State of Central Asia, should be emphasized. Based on it, we are witnessing the further development of regional relations.

Uzbekistan, led by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, is actively increasing mutual trade, developing joint projects in industrial cooperation, and addressing water and energy issues and transport. Today, Tashkent actively promotes intra-regional cooperation processes and inter-regional multifaceted ties.

During the Ashgabat trilateral summit, the President of Uzbekistan put forward proposals for the development of cooperation in the most important areas. Among them are the introduction of advanced water-saving technologies and the joint implementation of hydro and thermal energy projects. Special attention is paid to consolidating efforts to create an integrated transport infrastructure.

The initiative of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on the development of the transport corridor Uzbekistan – Turkmenistan – Iran, as well as the full implementation of the vast potential of the Trans-Caspian route, deserves special attention. Implementing these initiatives is undoubtedly designed to increase Central Asia’s strategic attractiveness as a transport and transit hub of international corridors along the East-West and North-South lines.
