In this regard, the benefits and preferences that are offered to investors in the pharmaceutical free economic zones created in Uzbekistan are disclosed in detail.
The presentation participants noted that the consistent measures taken in Uzbekistan to further liberalize the economy and strengthen favorable conditions for doing business are of great interest among Indian business circles.
