Head of the State Tourism Development Committee, Anvar Sharapov, met Korea’s Ambassador Kwon Yong Woo and Minister-Counsellor Choi Jong-Ho.
The Korean representatives were told about historical and cultural legacy, governmental reforms and efforts in developing tourism infrastructure.
The committee said Uzbekistan had the conditions necessary for Korean investment. It also proposed to further tourism cooperation, particularly in constructing and upgrading tourism infrastructure.
The sides said tourism administrative and business cooperation is based on tourism representatives of both countries taking part in various tourism events.
Considering this, Uzbekistan invited Korean representatives to the International Uzbek Tourism Fair, due to take place in April 2017. It also proposed organising B2B meetings with potential Uzbek partners and a tour around Uzbekistan. Korean representatives said they would consider the issue and ensure that Korean representatives took part.
Mr Kwon Yong Woo, in turn, appraised Uzbekistan’s tourism potential and the government’s attention to tourism development. He said Korea was willing to closely cooperate in tourism, especially in attracting Korean investors to hotel construction in Uzbekistan.
The parties agreed on developing propositions to strengthen tourism partnership, attract investment to tourism and hotel business, train tourism specialists, and share experience in the field.
