– I read a lot about your country, centuries-old traditions and values ​​of the Uzbek people, including a special respect for the senior generation. Since independence, these good national traditions and high moral qualities have been restored and have become one of the priorities of state policy.

The youth of the country which has great respect for the people of venerable age, provide them with all the support, brought up in the spirit of centuries-old values ​​and traditions of its people, patriotism, love and respect for their homeland.

Executive director of the newspaper The Times Kuwait Riven D’Souza:

– I want to emphasize that the formation of the social protection system, based on a solid legal basis, is one of the five principles of the “Uzbek model” of development. Today, in terms of allocation of state budget funds for the social protection needs of Uzbekistan is one of the leading places in the world.

The State Program “Year of attention and care for the senior generation” includes important measures aimed at further improving the quality of life of elderly people, increasing the scale of their material and moral support, improving their social, pension and health care.

Head of Communications of the Kuwaiti newspaper “Al-Nahar” Samir Frimesh:

– In Uzbekistan, self-government bodies are actively involved in the implementation of strong social policy, including the institution of “Mahalla”. It is a unique experience and a positive example for other states. Namely mahalla structures are well aware of the conditions of life, dreams, hopes and concerns of citizens. Thanks to their vigorous activity, provided targeted social protection, constant attention is paid to elderly and disabled people.
