Uzbekistan's president Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a law amending legislation to harmonize it with the World Trade Organization agreements on February 15.

The draft law was passed by the lower chamber of Uzbekistan's Parliament in late December and received Senate approval in January. It affects advertising, trademarks and intellectual property, as well as state duties.
