The Special adviser to the Prime Minister of Japan, former ambassador of Japan to Uzbekistan Mrs. Kyoko Nakayama has been to Tashkent on a working visit.
As a part of her stay in the country Mrs. Nakayama held talks at the Foreign Ministry of Uzbekistan, where she had discussed the issues of deepening and enhancing the cooperation of two countries. Despite her hectic schedule of stay in Tashkent Mrs. Nakayama has kindly agreed to talk to the Information Agency “Jahon”.
“During my visit we have discussed the issues of developing the economic ties between our countries”, Ambassador Nakayama has said. “It was literally today when the Japanese parliament has ratified the agreement on investment cooperation, which we had signed with Uzbekistan. We believe that this document will open up the new opportunities for extending and enhancing the mutually beneficial relations.”

We hope that the agreement ratified by our parliament will serve for consistent expansion of scales of cooperation and will help to more effectively and fuller use the economic potential of our countries”, she has also said.
“Soon the capital of Uzbekistan – Tashkent – will celebrate its 2200th anniversary jubilee. In this regard, I would like to note that I visit Tashkent each year and each year the city makes me impressed in different ways: I notice that the city rapidly changes, the new modern buildings are emerging, the infrastructure is being bettered, and as always, the faces of people are illumed with light and sincere smile”, Mrs. Nakayama has revealed.
“Taking this opportunity, I would also like to congratulate the people of Uzbekistan yet on another holiday – the Independence Day, which will mark the 18th anniversary of the nation’s independence”, Ambassador Nakayama added.
