Event Date: 8 October 2009
Event Time: 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Location: New York, NY

The American-Uzbekistan Chamber of Commerce (AUCC), together with the Ministry of Foreign Economic relations of the Republic of Uzbekistan, hosted the U.S.-Uzbekistan Investment Summit 2009 on October 8, 2009, in New York City.  The event which was held at the Harvard Club of New York City was followed by a gala dinner honoring Elyor M. Ganiev, Minister for Foreign Economic Relations, Investment and Trade for the Republic of Uzbekistan. Among the corporate sponsors were NUKEM, Inc., Zeromax GmbH, ExecutiveAction, LLC, White & Case LLP, and Caterpillar Inc.

An Uzbek delegation lead by Minister Ganiev was in attendance. Commenting on the success of the summit, Minister Ganiev said, "Uzbekistan has shown the vast potential that exists across a wide-array of sectors. Foreign investors," continued Minister Ganiev, "receive a favorable tax policy on corporate taxes and tax incentives and privileges including tax exemption on property, income and customs duties. Uzbekistan is open for business."

"The Investment Summit presented a unique forum for potential investors to explore specific opportunities in Uzbekistan," said Tim McGraw, Executive Vice President of NUKEM, Inc., AUCC President, and one of the featured speakers at the event. "The Uzbek government is highly motivated in its desire to attract direct foreign investment."

The conference featured a variety of speakers from government as well as business and industry. In addition, Rudy Maxa, host of the popular PBS program "Rudy Maxa's World," previewed his upcoming show on Uzbekistan, which will be televised in the spring of 2010. With financial support from the AUCC, Mr. Maxa spent two weeks on location in Uzbekistan filming the country and its wonderful Silk Road destinations.
