“Currently 36 Malaysian companies are successfully operating in Uzbekistan, and there is one Uzbek company in Malaysia.

“By the end of 2024, three Malaysian companies will start their activities in our country and currently, negotiations with several Malaysian industry players on establishing joint investment projects are well underway.

“We therefore think, there is huge untapped potential between Uzbekistan and Malaysia in terms of bilateral economic relations. Today we had a fruitful meeting with Proton deputy CEO Roslan Abdullah to discuss the prospects of joint co-operation in the automotive industry and we hope this will benefit both countries,” he said.

Roslan said the national car maker is always looking for partners to expand its reach.
