    “A person who works for the development of the country and the well-being of the people will never be in short supply. Today, your noble work is appreciated by the people and our country. Everyone admires you”, the President noted.

    The disturbing situation in the world, increasing competition and gaps in economic ties were noted.

    “In this difficult situation, it is necessary to act, measure not seven, but seventy times. We are building our foreign policy around our only goal – ensuring the interests of Uzbekistan. Our goal is the well-being of people. To do this, we need to use the opportunities more effectively, not only to preserve the existing ones, but also to create new ones”, the Head of the state said.

    Today, Uzbekistan people are moving forward together. Everyone in their field contributes to the development of the country. Elders, who do not regret their life experiences and valuable advice, also help in this. Active entrepreneurs, dehkans and farmers, workers and engineers are making their contribution. Representatives of science, education, medicine, culture, literature and art, and sports are selflessly participating in improving Uzbekistan's intellectual and spiritual potential.

    The criterion for the activity of state bodies was the targeted organization of work at the mahalla level. An important link in these reforms is the mahalla leaders. Women are becoming active participants in democratic processes and reforms in Uzbekistan.
