An ex­tra­or­di­nary con­fer­ence of the Cre­ative Union of Jour­nal­ists of Uzbek­istan has been held in Tashkent.

The con­fer­ence dis­cussed a num­ber of is­sues on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the tasks out­lined in the Au­gust reg­u­la­tions of the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try Shavkat Mirziy­oyev “On the es­tab­lish­ment of the Pub­lic Fund for the Sup­port of Cre­ative Per­sons of Uzbek­istan Il­hom” and “On mea­sures to fur­ther im­prove the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Cre­ative Union of Jour­nal­ists of Uzbek­istan”, and also to im­prove the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Union.

The con­fer­ence was at­tended by heads of the ter­ri­to­rial branches of the Cre­ative Union of Jour­nal­ists, se­nior of­fi­cials of the coun­try's lead­ing me­dia, cre­ative or­ga­ni­za­tions, and teach­ers of jour­nal­ism de­part­ments.

The event noted that the largescale re­forms be­ing car­ried out in the coun­try have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the de­vel­op­ment of the mass me­dia. Speak­ers stressed that the pro­pos­als and in­struc­tions of the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try Shavkat Mirziy­oyev, put for­ward at a meet­ing with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the cre­ative in­tel­li­gentsia, marked the be­gin­ning of a new era in the his­tory of cre­ative or­ga­ni­za­tions.

From the be­gin­ning of the year, the cre­ative union has started prac­ti­cal work on the ba­sis of ac­tion plan de­vel­oped in ac­cor­dance with the re­forms be­ing car­ried out in the coun­try. The mea­sures to im­ple­ment the tasks out­lined in the Strat­egy of Ac­tion for the five pri­or­ity ar­eas of the coun­try's de­vel­op­ment, strength­en­ing co­op­er­a­tion with cre­ative teams, pro­mot­ing na­tional val­ues, rich his­tor­i­cal her­itage, sup­port­ing young tal­ents, and ac­ti­vat­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Cre­ative Union of Jour­nal­ists are among these re­forms.

On the ini­tia­tive of the head of our state, with the pur­pose of sup­port­ing the lead­ing cre­ative or­ga­ni­za­tions and their em­ploy­ees, the Friends Club has been formed, and the spon­sor of the Cre­ative Union of Jour­nal­ists of Uzbek­istan is the Uzbek Repub­li­can Com­mod­ity and Raw Ma­te­ri­als Ex­change. To date, some work has been done in co­op­er­a­tion with the spon­sor­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion. For ex­am­ple, 400 mil­lion sums were al­lo­cated for joint ac­tiv­i­ties to im­prove the skills of jour­nal­ists, to stim­u­late young jour­nal­ists and vet­er­ans, to strengthen the ma­te­rial and tech­ni­cal base of the Cre­ative Union of Jour­nal­ists, the edi­to­rial staff of the “Hur­riyat” news­pa­per, and the Na­tional Press Cen­ter. In turn, in or­der to high­light the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Repub­li­can Com­mod­ity and Raw Ma­te­ri­als Ex­change, press con­fer­ences are or­ga­nized. In the near fu­ture, the web­site of two friendly or­ga­ni­za­tions will start func­tion­ing.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion of the pub­lic fund “Il­hom” and the “Friends Club” cre­ate wide op­por­tu­ni­ties for jour­nal­ists. It is en­vis­aged that due to these sources cre­ative nights of jour­nal­ists will be held, the first books of young tal­ented jour­nal­ists will be pub­lished, col­lec­tions of ar­ti­cles on the na­ture and sig­nif­i­cance of on­go­ing re­forms, and cre­ative trips abroad to me­dia rep­re­sen­ta­tives will be or­ga­nized.

Also, prob­lems and short­com­ings in the ac­tiv­ity of the union, plans for the fu­ture were dis­cussed. Now is the mo­ment for ac­tive re­forms in the coun­try. The most im­por­tant task for jour­nal­ists is to work in ac­cor­dance with these re­forms. The con­fer­ence noted about cur­rent short­com­ings: some me­dia are slow in pub­lish­ing ac­tual is­sues and there are not enough an­a­lyt­i­cal, crit­i­cal ar­ti­cles in the news­pa­pers. More­over there is no new ap­proach to de­sign, meth­ods and forms of pub­li­ca­tion of ma­te­ri­als. It is also nec­es­sary to in­crease the skill of jour­nal­ists in broadly cov­er­ing the essence and sig­nif­i­cance of the pro­cesses of re­newal that are tak­ing place in the coun­try, the adopted nor­ma­tive le­gal acts on life ex­am­ples, in a sim­ple and ac­ces­si­ble form.

The con­fer­ence made sug­ges­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions on fur­ther im­prov­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties of the me­dia and the Cre­ative Union of Jour­nal­ists in gen­eral.
