President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Mirziyoyev, friends,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Sochi.

In the beginning of our discussion, I would like to point out that our colleagues from both Russia and Uzbekistan are actively working on implementing the agreements that we reached during your recent visit to Russia.

I would also like to point out that we can see certain results, tangible results. Last year we had a slight decrease in trade, but this year we can see an increase: over 20 percent growth in the first eight months. This means that we will have an even bigger increase by the end of the year. There has been a significant increase in agriculture as well; growth is very serious and visible. If we add exports through third countries, our neighbours, there will be an even bigger increase of 40 percent, I think, overall.

Both our Industry Minister and Agriculture Minister paid visits to Uzbekistan, and both of them actively worked in their respective areas. We have good opportunities for cooperation in industrial production and for further broadening interaction in other areas, including agriculture.

I am very happy to see you and to have this opportunity to discuss all these issues on the sidelines of the CIS summit.

To be continued.
