Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE -

In New York on Septem­ber 20, Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev met with a group of our com­pa­tri­ots liv­ing in the United States of Amer­ica.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Uzbek­istan, the sa­cred land that raised great thinkers and sci­en­tists, are also show­ing the world their deep knowl­edge and po­ten­tial today. In par­tic­u­lar, many of our com­pa­tri­ots are liv­ing in the US and achiev­ing great suc­cess in their spheres. Among them are sci­en­tists, busi­ness­peo­ple, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of in­ter­na­tional and pub­lic or­ga­ni­za­tions, stu­dents.

The visit of Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev to the United States and the meet­ing with our com­pa­tri­ots liv­ing in this coun­try gave them great joy.

The head of our state said that he was in­fin­itely glad to meet with them in the US. He stressed that he had planned to have a sin­cere talk with them dur­ing this visit.

We all are well aware of how dif­fi­cult it is to find a place far away from our homeland and earn a de­served recog­ni­tion. Achieve­ment of such great suc­cess is not given to ev­ery­one, Shavkat Mirziy­oyev pointed out.

Uzbek­istan’s leader un­der­scored that he con­sid­ers it im­por­tant to meet and get to know them, to hold an open di­a­logue, to get opin­ions and pro­pos­als on im­por­tant tasks fac­ing our coun­try.

The Pres­i­dent spoke about the im­por­tance of the Strat­egy of Ac­tions on five pri­or­ity areas of devel­op­ment for 20172021, the con­cept of ad­min­is­tra­tive re­form, trans­for­ma­tions in the ju­di­cial and le­gal, fi­nan­cial spheres, in the realm of small busi­ness, tourism, health­care.

It was noted that in our coun­try a great work has be­gun on pro­vid­ing the pop­u­la­tion with hous­ing, devel­op­ment of sci­ence and ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing mod­ern spe­cial­ists. The con­ver­sa­tion helped dis­cuss the essence and sig­nif­i­cance of the youth pol­icy, ac­tiv­i­ties of the Union of Youth of Uzbek­istan in en­sur­ing the rights and in­ter­ests of young peo­ple.

2017 is de­clared in Uzbek­istan as the Year of Di­a­logue with Peo­ple and of Hu­man In­ter­ests. Lis­ten­ing to peo­ple’s de­mands and sug­ges­tions, deter­mi­na­tion of so­cio-eco­nomic pro­grams on the ba­sis of this be­came a pri­or­ity di­rec­tion of the govern­ment pol­icy. The Pres­i­dent, wher­ever he is, holds an open di­a­logue with cit­i­zens, lis­tens to the views and pro­pos­als of or­di­nary peo­ple.

This meet­ing was held in the spirit of open­ness and sin­cer­ity. Shavkat Mirziy­oyev in­quired into the life and ac­tiv­i­ties of ev­ery one of our fel­low coun­try­men and women who at­tended the con­ver­sa­tion.

Our com­pa­tri­ots noted that it is a great honor for them to meet with the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan, that they are im­mensely grate­ful for such a high at­ten­tion and con­sid­er­a­tion. They ex­pressed their views on the devel­op­ment of sci­ence, ed­u­ca­tion, tech­nolo­gies, in­vest­ments and other spheres in our coun­try, on the con­sol­i­da­tion of re­la­tions among the in­sti­tu­tions of Uzbek­istan and the United States.

Shavkat Mirziy­oyev urged our com­pa­tri­ots to be in­volved in largescale re­forms in Uzbek­istan, to di­rect mod­ern knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence for its devel­op­ment.

“I in­vite all com­pa­tri­ots abroad who wish to con­trib­ute to the ad­vance­ment of our coun­try, to Uzbek­istan,” said the head of state. “I am ready to support them and stim­u­late them at length.”

Par­tic­i­pants of the meet­ing em­pha­sized that the re­forms im­ple­mented by Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev will serve to fur­ther en­hanc­ing the wel­fare of our peo­ple. The com­pa­tri­ots stressed that they are will­ing to make in­put into Uzbek­istan’s com­pre­hen­sive devel­op­ment.
