"The Week of Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan, as well as the IV International Congress, which this year is held under the title: "Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan as the Foundation of a New Renaissance", will last until December 18. This will be an important event in the development and study of the cultural heritage of our country. The idea of a “new Renaissance”, voiced by our esteemed President, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, has become a good support for the implementation of joint ideas in this global process.

In this sense, we deeply understand the responsibility for preserving the history of our country, protecting the history of humanity and passing it on to the next generation.

Tourism, which has become an important sector of the economy of Uzbekistan, especially international tourism, directly depends on how much we preserve its cultural heritage in its original form." - Aziz Abdukhakimov said.

At the same time, cultural heritage and creativity play a crucial role in reducing poverty by creating jobs and improving the well - being of the population," said Ernesto Ottone.

He added that he highly appreciates the efforts of Uzbekistan, which places culture at the center of its development strategy, which is fully consistent with UNESCO's mission in the field of culture.
