The Independence is a great event that has radically changed the life and destiny of the country. This idea, this spirit has always been a solid support for our people.
Uzbekistan is entering a new stage of development. The enormous plans and programs are being implemented today. The President has called the awardees the most active agents of these transformations, the creators of the new Uzbekistan.
«A person who works for the development of the country and the well-being of the people shall never be deprived of anything. Today, your noble work is appreciated by the people and our country. Everyone admires you», the President has noted.
Today the people of Uzbekistan are moving forward together. Everyone in his field contributes to the development of the country. The elders, who do not spare their life experience and valuable advice, also help in this endeavor. The active entrepreneurs, dekhqans (‘peasants’) and farmers, workers and engineers are making their contribution. The representatives of science, education, medicine, culture, literature, art and sports are selflessly participating in improving the intellectual and spiritual potential of Uzbekistan.
The criterion for the activity of state bodies was the targeted organization of work at the makhalla (the local neighborhood community area) level. An important link in these reforms are the makhalla leaders. The women are becoming the active participants in democratic processes and reforms in Uzbekistan.

This is serving the interests of our multinational people, our beloved Uzbekistan. I wish all of you a good luck and success on this bright path», the President has emphasized.
