World Affairs STL & the International Relations Council of Kansas City welcomed the Uzbekistan Ambassador, Javlon Vakhabov, for a virtual presentation on Zoom. Uzbekistan’s economy is expanding into new industries and is improving its relationship with neighboring countries. These changes present unique opportunities for Missouri to become an important economic partner to a rapidly modernizing Uzbekistan.
