Hi, welcome to the FDI in Uzbekistan and Japan project. My name is Diyor, I am a graduate school student at Keio University in Japan. And this is a research project I started at Professor Jiro Kokuryo's "Creating and Managing Businesses in the Information Age " Research Lab from September 2015.
This project intends to explore investment opportunities in Uzbekistan and discusses its business environment for Japanese investors, particularly in manufacturing sector. After breaking up from Soviet-Union, Uzbekistan started a new era through transforming from socialistic system to open capitalistic market and it possesses enormous investment potential. Over the last few decades major industries such as automotive, agricultural machinery manufacturing, biotechnology, pharmaceutical industries and information technologies have been stepped into a new development stage. Since Uzbekistan is rich in various types of mineral fossils and reserves of gold, uranium, copper, silver, lead, zinc, tungsten, natural gas and other mineral fossils. It is required to attract the investments as much as US $3.7 billion just within the next three years for modernization and technological re-equipment of the enterprises specialized in processing industries.
