    The dialogue was attended by First Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism Ulugbek Azamov, Chairman of the Board of Uzbekistan Airports JSC Rano Jurayeva and representatives of the delegation of Changi Airports International.

    For information, Singapore Changi Airport was built in 1981, and in 30 years the annual passenger traffic has increased from 8 million to 60 million. Changi Airports International was established to provide aviation consulting services, project management and implementation of global investment projects, as the airport's work attracted airports around the world due to the presence of many requests for consulting services.

    On May 24, 2023, within the framework of the Uzbek-Singapore business forum, held on the eve of the visit of Singapore President Halima Yakub to Uzbekistan, a cooperation agreement was signed between Uzbekistan Airports JSC and Changi Airports International.

    Within the framework of the cooperation agreement, work is underway to optimize the activities of the Tashkent International Airport named after Islam Karimov, including improving the competitiveness and quality of passenger service, introducing advanced technologies and increasing passenger traffic, as well as developing the technical and economic foundations of the new Tashkent International Airport project.

    At the beginning of the meeting, representatives of the delegation of Changi Airports International were provided with detailed information about the tourism potential of our country, the ongoing reforms in the field of tourism, including the growth in recent years of the number of visa-free countries from 9 to 91 in connection with the "open door" policy introduced in Uzbekistan and the benefits provided in the field of aviation.

    During the negotiations, the foreign side reported on the processes of market research in Uzbekistan, as well as its plans to optimize the existing Tashkent International Airport.

    Following the meeting, the parties agreed to develop a step-by-step plan of joint actions to accelerate the implementation of all the agreements under discussion.
