New pro­pos­als to im­prove the ef­fec­tive­ness of for­eign pol­icy, as a rule, are de­vel­oped by think tanks. These re­search or­ga­ni­za­tions play a ma­jor role in pol­i­tics and diplo­macy.

To­day, in con­nec­tion with glob­al­iza­tion, the sig­nif­i­cance of an­a­lyt­i­cal cen­ters is sig­nif­i­cantly in­creased, but joint ef­forts of these or­ga­ni­za­tions rep­re­sent­ing dif­fer­ent coun­tries are al­ready nec­es­sary to ad­e­quately an­swer new chal­lenges and threats.

The pol­icy form­ing and ex­pert cir­cles of Ger­many met in Ber­lin with the del­e­ga­tion of Uzbek­istan, which in­cluded rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the par­lia­ment, the In­sti­tute for Strate­gic and In­ter­re­gional Stud­ies un­der the Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan (ISMI), the In­for­ma­tion and An­a­lyt­i­cal Cen­ter on In­ter­na­tional Af­fairs (IACMO), the Cen­ter for Devel­op­ment Strat­egy and oth­ers.

Uzbek ex­perts fa­mil­iar­ized the Ger­man col­leagues with the for­eign pol­icy ini­tia­tives of the Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev, told about the im­plemen­tation of the Strat­egy of Ac­tions for 2017-2022. The Ger­man part­ners wel­comed the adop­tion of this doc­u­ment and ex­pressed their readi­ness to pro­vide all-round as­sis­tance in the prac­ti­cal im­plemen­tation of the tasks de­fined therein.

They also noted the scale of the re­forms in Uzbek­istan, their fo­cus, first of all, on

The first an­a­lyt­i­cal cen­ters emerged in Europe. As early as in 1831, on the ini­tia­tive of the Bri­tish com­man­der and states­man Welling­ton, the Bri­tish Royal Joint In­sti­tute for De­fense Stud­ies was set up. At that time it was formed as a pro­fes­sional sci­en­tific mili­tary com­mu­nity, but in the mid-19th cen­tury the in­sti­tute be­gan to en­gage in re­search and fore­casts in the mili­tary field, thanks to which it is now the Bri­tish an­a­lyt­i­cal cen­ter for de­fense is­sues.

the sat­is­fac­tion of hu­man in­ter­ests. The con­cept of ad­min­is­tra­tive re­forms aimed at de­cen­tral­iza­tion and op­ti­miza­tion of the pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion sys­tem, com­bat­ing cor­rup­tion, and fa­cil­i­tat­ing peo­ple's ac­cess to state-pro­vided ser­vices was highly ap­pre­ci­ated and strongly sup­ported.

The in­ter­est of the Ger­man au­di­ence was aroused by the de­ci­sions of the Gov­ern­ment of Uzbek­istan on the in­tro­duc­tion of the sys­tem of ad­min­is­tra­tive justice, strength­en­ing the in­de­pen­dence and in­de­pen­dence of the ju­di­cial branch of power, the trans­for­ma­tion of in­ter­nal af­fairs bod­ies into a pub­lic-ori­ented pro­fes­sional ser­vice.

Ger­many wel­comes Uzbek­istan's ef­forts to lib­er­al­ize the for­eign ex­change mar­ket and en­sure the pro­tec­tion of prop­erty rights. These mea­sures cre­ate fa­vor­able op­por­tu­ni­ties for fur­ther deep­en­ing of trade, eco­nomic and in­vest­ment co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries.

To ex­pand mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial Uzbek-Ger­man co­op­er­a­tion, the lead­er­ship of the ISMI and IACMO signed mem­o­ran­dums of co­op­er­a­tion with au­thor­i­ta­tive re­search in­sti­tu­tions and think tanks of the rul­ing par­ties in Ger­many. Among them are the Kon­rad Ade­nauer Foun­da­tion, the Friedrich Ebert Foun­da­tion, the Euro­pean In­sti­tute of Cau­casian and Caspian Stud­ies.

OPIN­ION:

Mem­ber of the Ger­man Bun­destag Chris­tian Hirthe:

- Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev's pol­icy is aimed at en­sur­ing re­li­able pro­tec­tion of hu­man rights and free­doms. That is why the re­forms car­ried out in the coun­try en­joy the full sup­port of the peo­ple.

Re­gional Direc­tor for Cen­tral Asia of the Eastern Com­mit­tee of the Ger­man Econ­omy Ed­ward Kins­bruner:

- The Ger­man busi­ness com­mu­nity wel­comes Uzbek­istan’s ef­forts to lib­er­al­ize the for­eign ex­change mar­ket. Re­forms have al­ready re­ceived high praise from the World Bank, which in­cluded the repub­lic in the top ten coun­tries with the high­est rates of eco­nomic re­forms.

Mem­ber of the Ger­man Bun­destag, mem­ber of the par­lia­men­tary fac­tion of the rul­ing par­ties CDU / CSU, Dr. Joachim Pfeif­fer:

- Uzbek­istan has every chance to be­come a new eco­nomic tiger in Cen­tral Asia. The in­ter­est of Ger­man busi­ness cir­cles in the devel­op­ment of joint projects in such promis­ing ar­eas as al­ter­na­tive en­ergy, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, health­care and tourism is no­tice­able.
