Political relations

Relations between Serbia and Uzbekistan are good and friendly, without open issues. Both sides express interest in exchanging visits and more frequent meetings between officials of the two countries.

 

Economic relations

Economic cooperation is modest and based on the trade in goods. In the period January–February 2021, total trade in goods amounted to about 896.000 dollars, with exports being 876.000 dollars, and imports being 16.000 dollars. In 2020, total trade between the two countries was 2.5 million dollars, of which exports from Serbia were 2.02 million dollars, and imports about 490,000 dollars. In 2019, the total level of trade in goods was slightly less than 2 million dollars, of which Serbian exports amounted to 1.2 million dollars, and imports to about 73,000 dollars.

Serbia mainly exports to Uzbekistan built-in materials for finishing works in construction from wood, glass and metal, as well as furniture, calcium phosphates, marble, corn, etc. On the other hand, Serbia mainly imports from Uzbekistan cotton and beans.

 

Bilateral agreements

The plan is to sign several interstate agreements with the Uzbek side in the following period.

Serbia and Uzbekistan have signed only one bilateral agreement so far, and that is the Agreement on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations.
