Uzbekistan still pushing 'Silk Visa', trade minister says

More Japanese business investment wanted as Chinese presence reigns supreme

TOKYO -- Uzbekistan's trade minister reiterated his country's commitment to unified visa requirements for Central Asian nations based on a planned "Silk Visa," which is expected to increase tourism and promote regional integration.

Uzbekistan has the most liberal visa requirements in the region, granting visa-free entry to citizens of 86 countries. It would like to see its neighbors adopt the same approach.
