Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev made his first state visit to Moscow for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on April 4-5.
Bilateral trade, according to Mirziyoyev, was worth over $4 billion last year. “However, these figures absolutely do not measure up to the potential of our economies,” he said, setting a seemingly reasonable goal of $5 billion for 2017.
The two presidents oversaw the signing of investments deals worth $12 billion and trade contracts worth $3.8 billion.
Contracts were signed with giant state Russian companies such as Gazprom, Rostech, VEB. In particular, Gazprom signed 5-year contract for purchase of 4 bln cubic meters of Uzbek gas annually starting from 2018.
