A record economic mission to the growth market of Uzbekistan

Over 30 Austrian companies visited Tashkent and Samarkand to find their business partners in Uzbekistan.


Uzbekistan, a country with almost 33 million inhabitants, large reserves of raw materials and a fast growing economy, is currently one of the most emerging and attractive markets in the world. The Uzbek economy is annually growing by 6 percentage points, supported by extensive market reforms to remove production bottlenecks and to liberalize the economy.

Advantage Austria Almaty organized a business mission from 24 to 28 February 2020 to Tashkent and Samarkand with a record participation of 32 companies with almost 50 business representatives. Austrian companies were welcomed with great interest and enthusiasm by local authorities and businesses in the capital city of Tashkent and the regional and cultural hub Samarkand.

The aim of the economic mission was to network with potential business partners, authorities and industry specialists. Advantage Austria Almaty organized over 200 personal B2B meetings with Uzbek companies to present the business potential of Austrian enterprises. During the networking events, the participating Austrian companies were able to get an idea of the trends and current market developments in their industry sectors.
