Dear AUCC Members and Friends:
As interest from the US business community in Uzbekistan continues to increase, we have decided to focus this issue on some helpful resources that a new, or even an existing, US company may consider useful when preparing to visit the country and apply for Uzbek visa or undertaking an in-depth country market research and arranging for an in-country translator. Please note that these resources are just a suggestion and not recommendation.
We hope this information can help you be better prepared and know what to expect when exploring the Uzbek market of opportunities.
