An agree­ment was reached ear­lier be­tween the Em­bassy of Uzbek­istan in France and the As­so­ci­a­tion of Tourist Com­pa­nies of the Paris re­gion to hold the next reg­u­lar an­nual con­fer­ence in Sa­markand. In ac­cor­dance with this deal, more than 100 chiefs and other of­fi­cials of the tourist com­pa­nies of Paris have vis­ited our coun­try.

At the Sa­markand In­ter­na­tional Air­port, the spe­cial­ists were solemnly greeted by of­fi­cials led by the hokim of the city F. Rahi­mov.

Warmly wel­com­ing the guests, the city mayor in­formed that all the nec­es­sary con­di­tions were there for hold­ing the next con­fer­ence of the as­so­ci­a­tion in Sa­markand. The mu­nic­i­pal­ity and lo­cal travel com­pa­nies ex­pressed readi­ness to co­op­er­ate with Paris in tourism.

Pres­i­dent of the Ile de France As­so­ci­a­tion, Lionel de Ro­bieux, noted that the trip of French tourist com­pa­nies to Uzbek­istan will con­trib­ute to the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries in the field of tourism and open up new prospects. He also thanked for the ar­range­ment of the meet­ing at a high or­ga­ni­za­tional level.

“Sa­markand is the cen­ter of the an­cient Great Silk Road, a fab­u­lous city,” Lionel de Ro­bieux said. “To visit this city and en­joy its beauty is the dream of ev­ery French­man and woman. There­fore, to­day, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the ma­jor tourist com­pa­nies of France ar­rived in Sa­markand with the in­ten­tion of bol­ster­ing mu­tu­ally ad­van­ta­geous co­op­er­a­tion. Hold­ing a reg­u­lar con­fer­ence of our as­so­ci­a­tion in this his­toric city is a great honor for us.”

In ad­di­tion to the fo­rum held in the Regis­tan Plaza Ho­tel, ex­cur­sions were or­ga­nized around the tourist sites of Sa­markand, so were pre­sen­ta­tions of the city’s tourism op­por­tu­ni­ties, meet­ings of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of lo­cal travel agents and com­pa­nies with their French coun­ter­parts.
