The Uzbekistan – EAEU trade figures are important because they will lay the platform for debates about whether Uzbekistan should upgrade its trade status with the EAEU from Observer, to Partner status.
Additional stimulus into Uzbekistan’s trade has been the agreements it signed with both the European Union and United Kingdom last year, reducing tariffs to zero on thousands of products – the first trade deal of its type in Central Asia.
That has also affected Uzbekistan’s overall trade. From January through March 2022, Uzbekistan’s total foreign trade turnover increased by 1.7 times compared to the same period last year (US$7.5 billion), reaching US$13.2 billion.
