The event’s three-day agenda, filled with insightful presentations and discussions, showcased Uzbekistan’s strategic vision for the IT sector through the Uzbekistan-2030 strategy. This plan aims to elevate the IT sector’s appeal among youth and significantly increase service exports by employing 300,000 young professionals in IT. Such initiatives resonated with G-EMx Technologies’ objectives of nurturing talent and expanding service exports, making the trip particularly pertinent.

A tour to SamIT Global’s offices in Samarkand was a trip highlight. Specializing in logistics, IT education, and insurance, SamIT Global provided a practical look at the application of IT solutions in business operations and innovation, highlighting the potential for fruitful collaborations and investments in Uzbekistan’s IT sector.

Cultural Immersion and Broader Perspective

The concluding day of the tour, March 20th, was especially memorable, dedicated to a cultural program in Samarkand. This included visits to esteemed historical landmarks such as Shahi-Zinda and Registan, enriching our understanding of Uzbekistan’s rich heritage and contextualizing its modern tech ambitions.

For G-EMx Technologies, this cultural immersion was enlightening as we understand the Uzbek ethos, with its blend of tradition and a keen eye towards the future. It showed us that the ambitious tech evolution we’d come to explore was rooted in centuries of rich history and resilient progress. It underscored that genuine connections in business go beyond contracts and negotiations—they’re built on understanding and respecting each other’s cultures and dreams. As we look forward to weaving these insights into our future strategies, we’re not just planning collaborations but envisioning partnerships that respect and celebrate Uzbekistan’s vibrant culture alongside its technological aspirations.

Observations and Plans

The tour brought two key insights. Firstly, the extraordinary ambition and drive of the Uzbek youth made a deep impact. Their determination to bridge language gaps and connect with the global market highlights a workforce eager for collaboration. At G-EMx Technologies, we’re excited about the prospect of engaging with this vibrant talent pool for potential BPO or business expansions within the country.

CEO of G-EMx Technologies, Mr. Asmadi Ahmad, said, “In Uzbekistan, we found not just a market ready for technological collaboration but a rich culture that deeply influences its tech landscape. This journey has reaffirmed our commitment to building partnerships beyond technology, embracing Uzbekistan’s vibrant culture and ambitious youth as we look towards a future of mutual growth and innovation.”

Reflecting on our experience, the team returned with fond memories, a fresh perspective, and valuable insights. Uzbekistan’s readiness to embrace international partnerships and its forward-looking IT strategies set the stage for a promising future. We look forward to deepening our collaboration and investing in Uzbekistan, contributing to the growth of both G-EMx Technologies and Uzbekistan’s thriving IT ecosystem in the near future.
