Information Agency "Jahon"  - Malaysian delegation headed by HRH Raja Nazrin Shah, the Crown Prince of the state of Perak, Malaysia, visited Uzbekistan from 4th to 7th June 2011. During the visit HRH Raja Nazrin Shah and his delegation familiarized themselves with the historical and architectural heritage of Samarkand and Tashkent cities and held a meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations, Investments and Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan.  Just before departing Tashkent, HRH Raja Nazrin Shah met our correspondent and shared with him his experiences and impressions.  

In particular, HRH Raja Nazrin Shah highly evaluated the economic successes of our country.  “The economic achievements of Uzbekistan are impressive. Achieving GDP growth of 8.5% at a time when the rest of the world is just struggling to recover from the international financial and economic crisis is quite a feat. Here in your country you have great opportunities for business and favourable investment climate”, - noted HRH Raja Nazrin Shah.

On the outcome of his meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations, Investments and Trade, HRH Raja Nazrin Shah informed that during the meeting the two sides discussed issues which could contribute to further deepening of bilateral investment and trade-economic cooperation between the two countries.

”We exchanged views on the perspectives of cooperation in the fields of energy, machine-building, manufacturing of electrical and electronic appliances and in other areas of interest for Malaysia business community”, - noted HRH Raja Nazrin Shah.

According to HRH Raja Nazrin Shah, the bilateral cooperation in the field of tourism also has a huge potential, as such Uzbekistan’s rich historical and cultural heritage are very interesting for Malaysian tourists.

”Although my visit to Uzbekistan has been very short, still I was able to familiarize myself with many landmarks of your country. The richness, uniqueness and diversity of the historical and cultural heritage of the Uzbek people have left with me unforgettable memories and experiences. I am definitely planning to come again in order to familiarize myself more closely with the unique historical heritage of the ancient cities of Uzbekistan”, - concluded HRH Raja Nazrin Shah.
