Overview

This new study by the President of Uzbekistan focuses on the country's special opportunities and challenges as it faces the 21st century. From the mid-19th century onwards, the people of Uzbekistan were under the yoke of Tsarist Russia, and later under the yoke of the Soviet Communist Empire, which made this land of unique natural and mineral resources a mere raw-material appendix. Fortunately, Uzbekistan has a huge potential for the establishment and successful development of foreign economic relations for an active participation in global economic relations. One of these potentials lies in the specific geostrategic situation of the country, which can be a bridge between the West and East. Other potentials are the valuable and needed mineral resources, the agricultural products and the advance economic, manufacturing and social infrastructure.

    Presidents opinion

    This book is by the president of Uzbekistan Mr Karimov. Book mainly summarises what country acheived during its independence what needs to be done. reading this book will give you an impression that country is going on right track for stability and economic prosperity, book doesnt address real problems, leaves out some unfortunate incidents that are still being practiced in the country, such as human right violation and corruption. But I think it is very interesting to hear the elouqence of Mr Karimov and his way of seeing things as they happen
