In the midst of global geopolitical shifts, securing critical raw materials has become a pressing issue for leading nations like the United States and the European Union. Seeking to diversify its resource channels, the EU has turned its attention to Uzbekistan, signing a memorandum of understanding to foster sustainable value chains for vital commodities such as copper and molybdenum.

Recent diplomatic engagements between European leaders and Central Asian nations, particularly Uzbekistan, underscore the strategic importance of the region. France and Germany have been actively pursuing economic ties, with President Macron’s visit addressing strategic concerns and Germany signing a substantial trade deal with Uzbekistan.

Uzbekistan’s rich deposits of copper make it an attractive partner for the EU, especially as Europe aims to reduce reliance on Russian resources and meet ambitious climate targets. With China’s dominance in raw material production posing a challenge, the EU is keen on forging new partnerships in Central Asia.

Transportation logistics play a crucial role in ensuring a stable supply chain for raw materials. The Trans-Caspian International Transport Route, with Azerbaijan as a pivotal transit country, emerges as a promising avenue for transporting critical resources from Central Asia to Europe.

In this evolving landscape, Uzbekistan’s significance as a strategic partner for the EU is poised to grow, offering a potential solution to the challenges posed by the global competition for critical raw materials.
