Dear AUCC Members and Friends,


The following was kindly shared by the Uzbek Embassy in Washington, D.C.  Full speech by Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev is here.  


Address by the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan

H.E. Mr. Shavkat Mirziyoyev to Oliy Majlis


Esteemed Senators and Deputies!

Dear compatriots!

Dear guests! 


Allow me to deliver you the Address of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan to Parliament on the most priority goals of Uzbekistan’s development in 2019.

Today, we are living in the rapidly changing world. Global conflicts of interests and competition are growing. The international situation is being aggravated.

Accordingly, while planning practical actions for the next year, considering such harsh situation on the international arena, we need to highlight clearly and precisely the priority directions of our development. 


Dear friends!


Traditionally, with good intentions, we dedicate every year to something and set high ambitions for ourselves.

There is a deep meaning in the hadithmentioned in the book by our great compatriot Hazrat Imam Bukhariy, which goes:“Every good action depend on the will, every person will be granted solely what he wills”.

We have named the year 2018 to be “The Year of Support of Active Entreprenuership, Innovative Ideas and Technologies”. Within the State Prorgram we have implemented 76 thousand projectsworth of 21 trillion soums and 1 billion US Dollars. And we are now witnessing the outcomes of actions initiated last year with good will.

Tangible achievements have been reached in the fields of industry, agriculture, major construction, transport and communications, services. 

In particular, I would like to especially highlight selfless work of our diligent dekhkansand farmers despite the fact that this season was very difficult compared to other years. 

In view of increasing the population’s well being, the rates of wages, stipends, retirement and social benefits were notably increased versus previous years. In particular, for the first time for the last 10 years, the wages of teaching staff were increased by up to 50 percent.

The implementation of package of measures allowed a 12-percent increase of cumulative real income of population in relation to that of 2017.

The Government has appropriated funds worth of nearly2 trillion soums within Programs “Every Family is Entrepreneur” and “The Youth is Our Future”. As such, more than2,600 (two thousand six hundred) local business projects have implemented.

Starting from this year, out of the fulfillment from projected tax parameters, additional 5.5 trillion soums have been retained at local budgets. 

And this is 6 times morethan that of the previous year, while versus 2016, I would like to draw your attention to this fact, 32 times more


Dear compatriots!


The year coming to an end became the year of start of great deeds in landscaping of villages and makhallas(neighborhood areas), which represent the symbol of our sacred Homeland.

In particular, the programs “Prosperous village” and “Prosperous makhalla”have been welcomed by our people with profound joy. This year, 3 trillion soumshave been allocated for construction and landscaping works within this context. 

As a result, 416 villages got new image. 

During the expiring year, important steps were made in other fields of our life, in particular, in development of education and science, training and up-bringing, culture and arts, sports. Especially, we all were pleased of the fact that the youth of our country achieved high scores at Asia Olympic and Paralympics held in Indonesia and Olympic Games for Juniors held in Argentina.  To continue reading, please click here
