The head of government noted the need to build up industrial and investment cooperation within the SCO.

“The implementation of joint investment projects will allow to strengthen the level of integration of national economies, diversify the directions of production processes and increase their stability, expand the access of the value created by the SCO member states to both mutual and foreign markets, maximize the potential of economies through competitive advantages, and reduce the impact of external shocks,’’ said Mamin.
