Uzbekistan Today (English) - - CULTURE AND ARTS -

The photo ex­hi­bi­tion «Do you know Bel­gium?», which re­flects the cul­ture, art, his­tory, cus­toms and his­tor­i­cal sights of the Bel­gians, is or­ga­nized in the State Mu­seum of His­tory of the Te­murids.

It is or­ga­nized by the Com­mit­tee on In­tereth­nic Re­la­tions and Friendly Re­la­tions with For­eign Coun­tries un­der the Cab­i­net of Min­is­ters of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan and the Friend­ship So­ci­ety «Uzbek­istan Bel­gium» in co­op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan, the In­ter­na­tional Pub­lic Char­ity Fund of Amir Te­mur and the State Mu­seum of His­tory of the Te­murids. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of state and pub­lic or­ga­ni­za­tions, sci­en­tists, re­searchers, mu­seum sci­en­tists and pro­fes­sors-teach­ers took part in its open­ing.

Deputy Speaker of the Leg­isla­tive Cham­ber of the Oliy Ma­jlis of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan, Chair­man of the «Uzbek­istanBel­gium» Friend­ship So­ci­ety B.Alikhanov noted that in our coun­try equal rights and con­di­tions are cre­ated that pro­mote the strength­en­ing of in­tereth­nic har­mony, the de­vel­op­ment of cul­tural and ed­u­ca­tional re­la­tions with for­eign coun­tries. In par­tic­u­lar, the cul­tural and hu­man­i­tar­ian ties be­tween Uzbek­istan and Bel­gium are be­com­ing more ac­tive, and co­op­er­a­tion in the sphere of tourism is de­vel­op­ing.

He was sup­ported by the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Wal­loon re­gion of the Bel­gian King­dom in Uzbek­istan Jean-Claude Beau­jan: «We are di­rect­ing ef­forts to the com­pre­hen­sive de­vel­op­ment of re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries, strength­en­ing cul­tural, ed­u­ca­tional, eco­nomic ties. The cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion demon­strates the great in­ter­est in Uzbek­istan in the his­tory, cul­ture, art and na­tional cus­toms of Bel­gium. Within its frame­work, we con­ducted a cer­e­mony of award­ing the win­ners of the con­test «Do you know Bel­gium?» among se­nior classes’ pupils in sec­ondary schools of Tashkent city». Win­ners and prizewin­ners were given mem­o­rable gifts.

The win­ner of the con­test Polina Eshon­ova proudly an­nounced: «I'm glad that I won the con­test. Dur­ing the con­test I got in­for­ma­tion about the co­op­er­a­tion of our coun­tries. Such com­pe­ti­tions help us to con­sol­i­date our knowl­edge.»
