Dear AmCham members and friends,
As the new Executive Director of the American Chamber of Commerce in Uzbekistan, I have a great pleasure to extend my greetings to AmCham members and friends.
From the beginning of the year, the Chamber is developing new strategies to insure more proactive position of its members and place the economic and trade development of our membership within the regional framework. For this purpose, we need your valuable participation and inputs.
We use our best efforts to consolidate and enhance our membership from inside. By facilitating the services proposed by our working committees, we wish to increase the number of our companies. Since all the committees are made up of the representatives of our members, they are familiar with all the concerns and spheres of interests of their colleagues.
At the beginning of the 2008, the Trade and Investment Committee, chaired by Mr. Yevgeny Onokhin, resumed its activity. As the result, we managed to intensify the collaboration of AmCham, UNDP and the Uzbek Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Our companies are encouraged to participate in the Business Forums that meet AmCham's mission statement. We do this to provide a constructive dialog and interaction between the representatives of business circles and the governmental structures. The detailed quarterly report of the Trade and Investment Committee is presented in this issue.
