“Uzbekistan Railways wishes to make use of SJSC Latvijas Dzelzceļš (LDz) successful experience in reorganization of the company’s structure in order to become a modern and efficient railway company based on Latvia’s example,” Husnutdin Hasilov, head of Uzbekistan Railways, said during a meeting with LDz Board Chairman Māris Kleinbergs.
Heads of the two railway companies met during a visit of LDz representatives to Uzbekistan this week. According to a memorandum of understanding signed by LDz and Uzbekistan Railways earlier this year, the companies agreed to set up a cross-sectoral task force that will ensure experience exchange and provide advice on reforming Uzbekistan’s railway industry.
“Recently we have significantly expanded cooperation with Uzbekistan Railways - in the first nine months of the year, the volume of freight transportation between our countries has doubled. During the meeting with the management of Uzbekistan Railways, we agreed that there are a number of prerequisites for further development of cooperation – exchange of experience regarding what has been done in reorganization of our company and improving its efficiency is just one of the areas," emphasizes Māris Kleinbergs.
