Background

In an effort to reform Uzbekistan’s economy, the Uzbek government has taken effective measures to liberalize foreign trade, modify tax and financial policies, support entrepreneurship, guarantee the inviolability of private property, and ensure the accelerated development of Uzbek regions. Expanding the pharmaceutical industry is one of the critical economic and development priorities for the Government of Uzbekistan.

One of the important strategies for development of pharmaceutical industry is to incentivize the investment in Uzbekistan’s pharmaceutical sector for expansion of production of quality-assured medicines in the country. These initiatives include tax incentives for the companies operating in Free Economic Zones. Additionally, the Government of Uzbekistan has invested $293 million USD in the development of the Tashkent Pharma Park, an innovative scientific-industrial pharmaceutical cluster containing analytical and research laboratories, clinical research centers, and pharmaceutical production sites. The Pharmaceutical Technology University will also be established within the Pharma Park. For investors implementing projects in the Tashkent Pharma Park cluster and in the Free Economic Zones, several accommodations will be provided, including exemption from several types of taxes, assistance in obtaining proper documents.

The Pharmaceutical Industry Development Agency (the Agency) of the Ministry of Health of Uzbekistan is responsible for industry development and oversees the international cooperation critical to Uzbekistan’s transition to sustainable pharmaceutical development. As such, the Agency is interested in reaching foreign pharmaceutical manufacturers in the US to discuss Uzbekistan’s pharmaceutical regulatory landscape, new incentives for the pharmaceutical companies interested in entering the Uzbekistan market, and opportunities for collaboration with the Uzbekistan pharmaceutical companies.

Areas of interest include:

▪️ Production of medicines, medical devices, and medical equipment in Uzbekistan
▪️
Collaboration between US pharmaceutical companies and Tashkent Pharma Park
▪️
Establishing clinical research organizations
▪️
Collaboration with the Institute of Vaccines and Serums
