Uzbekistan: Actions Strategy and Social Policy

The Federation of Trade Unions of Uzbekistan has said is holding an international conference “Strategy of Actions and Strong Social Policy: International Practice and Uzbekistan’s Experience” on April 24-26 with participation of partner organizations. Local and international media were briefed in the National Press Center of Uzbekistan earlier this week about the forthcoming event.

The journalists were provided with information about the aims of the forthcoming forum, its content, recommendations for the results of the conference. In particular, it was noted that preparations for this international conference are held at a high level.

The trade unions reminded at the briefing that in the process of reforms under the leadership of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, great emphasis is placed on robust targeted social protection of the population.

The idea of holding this international conference drew full-hearted support from the International Labor Organization, the International Trade Union Confederation, the European Regional Council of the International Trade Union Confederation, and the International Employers’ Organization. Representatives of these authoritative international institutions and trade union centers of foreign nations, the diplomatic corps accredited in Uzbekistan, experts and scientists from more than 30 countries are expected to attend the conference, the organizers informed.

The end result expected from the international conference is to widely familiarize the participants with the systemic reforms spearheadeded at the initiative of the President of our country and on the basis of the Strategy of Actions along Five Priority Areas for the Development of the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2017-2021, as well as their positive effects. At the same time, the prospects are to be determined for further development of social partnership between trade-union organizations, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and other institutions of civil society.

Within the framework of the forum, foreign participants are anticipated to visit Samarkand, Bukhara and Tashkent regions. Experts from abroad will have an opportunity to witness – in the example of ordinary citizens’ lives – the effects of the vigorous social policy pursued in our country in the interests of the individual.

The conference will turn into an international platform for a constructive discussion of the proposals, opinions and experiences of the forum participants who are directly involved in solving social and labor problems. Its holding in this format demonstrates the openness of Uzbekistan to the international community, its readiness to study and implement the international best practice.
