taking into account the transition strategy of the Republic of Uzbekistan to sustainable development of industry, the parties discussed expansion of cooperation ties in the energy and chemical fields.
In this regard, the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Uzbekistan, JSC Uzkimyosanoat and the German company Linde GmbH signed a preliminary agreement on the implementation of a number of projects. The initiative includes assessing the possibilities of joint construction of new production facilities, such as synthesis gas for the Methanol-Olefins complex and hydrogen production using alternative energy sources.

as well as increasing the share of alternative energy sources, which will contribute to the implementation of the Strategy for the transition of the Republic of Uzbekistan to a “Green” economy.
