We would like to remind you about the last month’s seminar in Tokyo, dedicated to the bilateral cooperation between Uzbekistan and Japan, where the representatives of the Uzbek Embassy introduced the Surkhandarya region tourism potential to the participants.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of both countries, the Japan Agency on Tourism, UZBEKISTAN AIRWAYS National Airlines Office in Tokyo, academicians and researchers, travel industry representatives and mass media agencies took part in the event, organized by the Silk Road Fund “Japan-Uzbekistan”.
It was mentioned that the Great Silk Road had served as a connecting point for the establishment and development of cultural relations between the two nations. Close intercultural exchange keeps enriching the relations between our countries, as with the case of Professor Kjudzo Kato, who has dedicated more than 50 years of his life to studying the history, archaeology and ethnography of Uzbekistan, thus contributing a lot to strengthening the intercultural relations between Uzbek and Japan people.
Uzbekistan’s President, Shavkat Mirziyoev’s visit to Japan during the last year, has also been mentioned as a significant point for bringing a new era into the Uzbek-Japanese relations.
The participants were introduced to the ongoing reforms and achievements in this field, and the favorable conditions being created for the travelers. Surkhandarya region’s rich potential and attractions were highlighted specifically.
The Japanese side had noted that their government was paying great attention to the cooperation in the tourism field with the Central Asian countries, particularly with Uzbekistan, since it has been indicated from the last year to be the main subject of bilateral cooperation within the project of “Central Asia + Japan”.
