Chi­nese Ex­perts: Tashkent May Be­come the Re­gion’s Po­lit­i­cal and Eco­nomic Cap­i­tal

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - WORLD -

Spe­cial­ists of the Shang­hai Univer­sity of In­ter­na­tional Stud­ies have been closely mon­i­tor­ing the de­vel­op­ments in Uzbek­istan and they share their ob­ser­va­tions on the univer­sity’s web­site.

This time the por­tal has posted an ar­ti­cle, whose au­thor fo­cused on the ini­tia­tives of Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev voiced from the ros­trum of the UN Gen­eral As­sem­bly. Un­doubt­edly, at­ten­tion was di­rected to the pro­posal of the Uzbek leader to grad­u­ally re­form the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil by ex­pand­ing its mem­ber­ship in ac­cor­dance with the re­al­i­ties of the rapidly chang­ing world.

Chi­nese ob­servers did not ig­nore the ini­tia­tive of the Uzbek leader to set­tle the sit­u­a­tion in Afghanistan. Ex­press­ing sol­i­dar­ity with the be­lief of Shavkat Mirziy­oyev on the need to solve the Afghan prob­lem through di­rect di­a­logue, with­out pre­con­di­tions, between the cen­tral govern­ment and the main do­mes­tic po­lit­i­cal forces, the au­thors of the ar­ti­cle are pos­i­tive about the prac­ti­cal as­sis­tance of Tashkent in re­build­ing the neigh­bor­ing state. The as­sur­ances of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan in con­tin­u­ing as­sis­tance to Afghanistan the spe­cial­ists of the univer­sity con­sider “very im­por­tant for es­tab­lish­ing peace and sta­bil­ity on the long-suf­fer­ing Afghan land”.

Ex­pound­ing on the the­ses of the head of the Uzbek state on in­ter­nal re­forms in the repub­lic, the ex­perts of the SUIS note that the world com­mu­nity wel­comes the “new face of the coun­try”. And in this con­nec­tion, there come the com­ments on the lib­er­al­iza­tion of the cur­rency mar­ket in Uzbek­istan. The au­thor of the ar­ti­cle cited the opin­ion of prom­i­nent econ­o­mists: “Ex­perts unan­i­mously de­clare that that was a bold de­ci­sion. The tran­si­tion to free ex­change of for­eign cur­rency in the repub­lic has be­come a his­toric event not only for the coun­try, but for the whole re­gion. This will rad­i­cally change the en­tire eco­nomic struc­ture of Cen­tral Asia, and Tashkent can be­come the po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic cap­i­tal of the re­gion.”
