Artak Kamalyan visited mechanical engineering enterprises of Uzbekistan

As part of his working visit to the Republic of Uzbekistan, Artak Kamalyan, Minister in charge of Industry and Agriculture of the Eurasian Economic Commission, visited major mechanical engineering enterprises in Samarkand for the assembly of heavy-duty motor vehicles, in particular UzAuto TRAILER company, where the manufacture of KAMAZ trucks is localized, UZ TRUCK AND BUS MOTORS enterprise manufacturing MAN heavy-duty and passenger vehicles, and the Samarkand Automobile Factory for the manufacture of commercial vehicles, i.e. buses, trucks and special operation vehicles.

During the meetings with the plant management, the EEC Minister discussed the prospects of industrial cooperation in the automotive industry between Uzbekistan, being the observer country at the EAEU, and the Union States. Earlier, this issue had been raised at a meeting of the EAEU Industrial Policy Council involving Sardor Umurzakov, Deputy Prime Minister — Minister of Investment and Foreign Trade of Uzbekistan.
In particular, the case touched on creating value-added production chains and promoting products to emerging markets, implementing large-scale projects in the automotive industry aimed at increasing the volume of mutual trade, and deepening cooperation between the EAEU and Uzbekistan in manufacturing mechanical engineering products.

"We should more actively cooperate with Uzbekistan and the Republic’s enterprises. This is especially important amid the upcoming implementation of the "road map" between the EAEU and the Government of Uzbekistan. It is essential to discuss the ways to solve the enterprises’ problems related to implementing cooperative projects and ensuring equipment supplies to the EAEU market," the EEC Minister stressed.

Following the negotiations, Artak Kamalyan noted the Commission’s readiness to provide assistance to enterprises of Uzbekistan interested in entering the Union’s markets as well as suggested using the Commission’s experience on localizing machinery in the Union.
