The recent visit of the Regional Director for Central Asia of ACIR Southern Europe, Miguel de la Cruz, and the Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of Spain in Uzbekistan, Gonzalo Furnier, to the Samarkand region was a great step to strengthen the relationship between both countries in various sectors, including the economy, trade, investment, culture, and academia. During their stay, they had the opportunity to meet with the authorities of the Samarkand regional government to analyze the possibilities of cooperation in various sectors, demonstrating the intention of both nations to strengthen their relationship and open new business opportunities.
In particular, cooperation was discussed in the tourism, smart cities, urban planning, and architecture sectors; sectors in which ACIR Southern Europe is constantly working and implementing projects in Central Asia.
Of particular interest were the activities that ACIR Southern Europe will carry out in Southern Europe as a representative of Samarkand in that region, which will include the promotion of business opportunities, investment facilities, culture, and education.
Cultural and academic cooperation, an important step for Spain and Uzbekistan
The visit also included meetings with representatives of two important universities in Samarkand: the University of Foreign Languages and the Tourism University “Silk Road”. In these meetings, possibilities for collaboration in the academic and scientific fields were discussed, which is essential for the exchange of knowledge and experiences between nations.
The strengthening of business and trade exchange between both countries is essential for economic growth and the development of both nations. The opening of new investment opportunities in the future is key to the success of cooperation between nations.
In addition to meetings with authorities and university representatives, the visit also included cultural activities in which Spanish writer and translator Marta Rebon participated. These activities were very well received by the academic and business community of the region, demonstrating the interest of both nations in promoting cultural and artistic exchange.
Marta Rebon’s presence on the visit is an example of how literature and translation can be used to promote cooperation between nations.
