President visits Khorezm region
President Islam Karimov visited Khorezm region on 3 October to familiarize himself with the socioeconomic reforms and changes in the agricultural sphere and the ongoing construction work in the area.
As in other regions of our country, farming is successfully developing in Khorezm region. The difficulty of this year related to water shortages affected the area as well. However, the farmers have grown a rich harvest of cotton.
The President visited the Bogot farm of the Bogot district and familiarized himself with the agricultural works here. He met the leading farmers, specialists of the agro-industrial complex and the public.
To date, one new school was built in the region, and 95 schools were renovated. In accordance with the President’s resolution of 8 July 2008 on the state program of improvement of children’s music and art school, 7 of the existing 15 music schools will be reconstructed and 8 will undergo capital repairs.
The head of the state drew the attention to the large-scale development of farming in the area and touched upon the next stage of reforms in this direction. Across the country, the process of further expanding and strengthening of farms is occurring. Currently, large farms at the expense of rational organization of labor produce richer harvest and have higher earnings. They can buy the necessary equipment, attract additional manpower and continually improve the soil. For small farms such opportunities are limited.
“Farming in Khorezm has been intensively developing,” said Islam Karimov. “Now it is necessary to move to the next important stage of farming. Measures have to be taken to unite small farms to increase the level of production in agriculture, expand farmers’ capacities and further improve the efficiency of reforms in the sector.”
This was also discussed at the President’s meeting at the regional administration. Its participants paid attention to the need for timely harvest of cotton.
The President visited the sergeants school of the North-Western Military Region, opened in September 2007 in Urgench. It teaches military training, computer technologies, humanities and foreign languages. The school has all the necessary conditions for enhancing the theoretical knowledge and military skills of the cadets. It has a training field, panoramic computerized training halls, and a modern library.
Last year, the head of the state also visited this school and gave recommendations on creating the necessary conditions for the students.
The President gave instructions to the heads of the school on the further improvement of the educational institution, living conditions and education.
