The Address of the Head of our state to the members of the Senate and deputies of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis, dedicated to the results of the main activities carried out in 2017, and the most priority areas of socio-economic development of the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2018, continues.
There are more than 1,5 thousand mass media of various forms of ownership, areas of activity and format of information transfer, in our country.
All of them need highly qualified staff. Unfortunately, there is no basic higher education institution in our country that would solve these large-scale tasks centrally, said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
To this end, the need to establish a University of Journalism and Mass Communication was noted.
