“This MoU with the Republican Stock Exchange serves as a new milestone in our ongoing efforts to augment global connectivity and foster information exchange among diverse markets. This partnership expands our reach into Central Asia, aligning perfectly with our goals of increasing cross-border market efficiency and liquidity. We look forward to welcoming and adding RSE to the Tabadul platform in the near future. Together with the members of the Tabadul Hub, we aim to provide our investors with more access to international markets and innovative solutions to expand their portfolios, thus reinforcing our position as a leading institution driving growth in the global marketplace.”

Giorgi Paresishvili, Chairman of the Board at RSE, said that, “We are very excited to have signed an MOU with the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, which paves the way for further collaboration between our exchanges. ADX’s Tabadul initiative is about mutual recognition of member-brokers and enabling cross-border trading and settlement of securities in various markets across the Middle East and Central Asia. The Tabadul initiative bodes well for our strategy of enabling foreign investors’ easy access to the Uzbek capital market and vice versa.”

The MoU is expected to strengthen cross-border market activity between the two countries and contribute to the growth of the securities market in both the United Arab Emirates and the Republic of Uzbekistan.
