President Shavkat Mirziyoyev of Uzbekistan will visit Korea starting Wednesday at the invitation of President Moon Jae-in to enhance bilateral cooperation.

President Mirziyoyev is the second head of state after U.S. President Donald Trump to visit Korea since Moon assumed office. This shows Moon’s focus on Central Asia to diversify Korea’s diplomacy beyond the four powers of the U.S., China, Russia and Japan.

The two countries have built strong ties in various sectors since the establishment of bilateral relations in 1992.

In particular, the two countries have been expanding bilateral economic cooperation, with Uzbekistan providing raw materials and labor, while Korea has been active in transferring information technology and investing in the country.

Uzbekistan, as the center of the Silk Road, has huge economic potential with a population of 30 million, the 44th largest in the world, and also has a geographical advantage close to Europe as a good bridgehead for Korea to advance into the West.

The Uzbek president's state visit is expected to help Korea expand its economic influence in Central Asia and gain cooperation for the resolution of North Korea problems on the Korean Peninsula

During his stay, the Uzbek leader will make a rare speech at the National Assembly.

We look forward to hearing about his vision for sustainable development of bilateral relations and deepening the friendship of the peoples of the two countries.
