The visit of the Japanese delegation


Uzbekistan and Japan are rapidly developing multilateral cooperation.

In order to further development and expansion of mutual cooperation between the two countries in cultural and humanitarian spheres on August 3, 2016, Akie Abe – the spouse of the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe and the delegation of cultural and art workers of Japan have paid a visit to our country.

In Tashkent International Airport the wife of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Tatyana Karimova met the spouse of the Prime Minister of Japan Akie Abe.

Uzbek-Japanese relations have been developing in the spirit of the Joint Statement on Friendship, Strategic Partnership and Cooperation signed during the official visit of the President of our country to Japan in July 2002. Official visit of the Head of our state to Japan in February 2011 and the Prime Minister of Japan to Uzbekistan in October 2015 raised the relations between our countries to a new level.

Сultural and humanitarian ties are of great importance in consolidation of cooperation between the two countries. Under the “Official Development Assistance” program and through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) a number of projects in the socio-economic and cultural spheres are being carried out. The Days of Culture and Cinema of Uzbekistan are being organized in Japan. Creative leaders of the Land of the Rising Sun are actively involved in international forums ongoing in our country, in particular, the international music festival “Sharq taronalari”.

Establishment of monument to our great ancestor – the outstanding poet and thinker Alisher Navoi in Tokyo, creation of the Japanese garden in Tashkent, assignment of name of the Japanese scientist and artist Ikuo Hirayama to the International Caravanserai of Culture of Uzbekistan Academy of Arts are a manifestation of the proximity of our peoples in the cultural sphere.

The program of the visit of the Japanese delegation includes a visit to the burial place of the Japanese internees, the Museum of Applied Arts of Uzbekistan, a concert program of creative collective “Drum Tao” of Japan at the State Academic Bolshoi Theatre named after Alisher Navoi.
