The “Regions of Russia” magazine recently published an article titled “Shavkat Mirziyoyev – Seven Years of Openness in Uzbekistan”.
From the start of his tenure, Shavkat Miromonovich has greatly expanded the country’s foreign policy, resulting in a significant rise in Uzbekistan’s global influence. Currently, the nation has diplomatic ties with all Arab countries besides Israel. In 2021, the trade between Uzbekistan and the Arab world was estimated to be $1.8 billion. Exports of goods to the Arab nations increased by 25%, amounting to $1.2 billion, while imports dropped by 3%. Uzbekistan exports gold, cotton, fruits and vegetables, textiles, chemicals, and metals. After almost thirty years of negotiations, Shavkat Mirziyoyev was able to resolve the border dispute with Kyrgyzstan and clear up any misunderstandings.
The article also mentions the President’s efforts in the implementation of various infrastructure projects such as the development of the transport network, energy, water supply, and housing construction. Several roads were built, airports, power grids, and hydroelectric power plants were modernized. In different parts of Uzbekistan, active construction and improvement of water and sewage systems, residential buildings, schools, hospitals, sports, and other social facilities are ongoing.
The “Regions of Russia” magazine also states that under the leadership of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, Uzbekistan has made great progress, gaining modern infrastructure and many allies and partners all over the world. Although there is still much to be done, the contributions of the country’s leader to its development are already evident.
