To do this, it was necessary to make changes to the basic law of the country. The presidential term of office was also increased from five years to seven. These actions updated all the conditions of the elections, and president uzbekistan shavkat mirziyoyev received the right to run for office two more times.
He took advantage of this opportunity, and in the summer of 2023 he won early elections, with more than 87% of the country’s voters voting for him.
Among other ongoing reforms, one can highlight the amnesty of political prisoners, which was carried out during the first term of the president’s rule, the expansion and consolidation of women’s rights, and their active involvement in the social and economic life of Uzbekistan. The prohibition of forced child labor and the removal of bureaucratic barriers for cotton producers improved the social and economic situation of a significant part of the country’s population.
An important area of policy is good neighborliness and the development of integration with other countries. Border demarcation has been carried out, claims from neighboring states have been lifted, the use of water resources for irrigation and electricity production is being improved, and alternative methods of generating energy, including renewable sources, are being developed.
The main foreign trade partners are Russia, where the bulk of Uzbekistan’s exports go, and China, from where the country receives the bulk of its imports.
