The President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev and the Prime Minister of Malaysia Anwar Ibrahim made statements to the representatives of the media after the negotiations.

The leaders highly appreciated the fruitful results of the summit, which took place in an open, trusting and friendly atmosphere.

The Head of our State particularly noted the traditionally close ties between the two peoples, based on the commonality of religion, customs and values.

“Malaysia is a country with dynamic development rates not only in Southeast Asia but also in the world. It is our reliable and time-tested partner. Symbolically, the National Independence Day is celebrated in both countries on the same day, August 31”, the Uzbek President pointed out.

The similarity of goals and objectives of the implemented strategic development programs, such as “Uzbekistan 2030” and “Malaysia Madani,” was highlighted.

It was noted that the current historic visit of the Prime Minister of Malaysia opens a new chapter in the history of bilateral relations and will give a strong impetus to their development.

During the negotiations, priority areas and new milestones for the further development of mutually beneficial cooperation were outlined.

Agreements were reached to intensify political dialogue and contacts at the highest levels, and to establish a joint Intergovernmental Commission.

Both sides expressed their mutual desire to upgrade the bilateral relations to a comprehensive partnership in the near future.

The leaders paid particular attention to increasing trade turnover and the number of joint ventures. The parties agreed to launch systematic work to significantly increase these indicators in the near future.

The Head of our State stressed that the expansion and balance of mutual trade, joint access to the markets of third countries, and the creation of a special industrial zone for the promotion of high-tech projects will contribute to achieving this goal.

Concrete plans for cooperation in energy, petrochemicals, mining, electrical engineering, agriculture, food industry, pharmaceuticals, finance sector, IT and other industries were outlined.

Confidence was expressed that the outcomes of tomorrow’s Business Forum in Samarkand, with the participation of leading companies from both countries, and the signing of a solid package of investment agreements, will add new content to the partnership.

The commitment to continue close dialogue and mutual support in regional and international organizations was reaffirmed.

Measures will be taken to expand cultural and humanitarian exchanges, including the mutual holding of cultural weeks, youth forums, educational and sports events, and various exhibitions.

It was emphasized that the results of the Summit will contribute to the strengthening of Uzbek-Malaysian relations and give new practical content to the multi-dimensional partnership.

Following the negotiations, it was agreed to adopt a joint “roadmap” for the timely and qualitative implementation of all the agreements reached.
