Jamshid Khodjaev, the deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan, will travel to India this week to attend a scheduled meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission with Piyush Goyal, the Indian minister of commerce. Minister Goyal and his counterpart Khodjaev are the co-chairs of the joint commission meeting. Agriculture, innovation, connection, research and technology, textiles, and leather will be Uzbekistan's main areas of focus.

This is the second high-level visit from Uzbekistan to India. Furkat Sidikov, the deputy foreign minister of Uzbekistan, met with the minister of state for external affairs Meenakshi Lekhi on a visit to India earlier this month. The main goal of Sidikov's visit was to inform the Indian side of the Turkic country's recently announced constitutional revisions.
