Shavkat Mirziyoyev was elected president of Uzbekistan in December 2016 after the death of the country’s longtime leader, Islam Karimov. Mirziyoyev quickly embarked on his agenda to modernize the economy, improve education and health care, and ensure closer ties with the international community.
After coming to power, Mirziyoyev embarked on a policy of economic reforms aimed at making Uzbekistan more attractive to foreign investors.

In addition, the domestic market has become freer and more competitive, which has contributed to the growth of small and medium-sized businesses in the country.
Since Mirziyoyev came to power, many political reforms have been implemented in the country, such as the abolition of the corruption system and the introduction of new laws aimed at increasing freedom of speech and mass media, as well as local elections. These measures have been well received by the international community and have allowed Uzbekistan to conclude agreements with other countries.

Education and science
In the field of education, Mirziyoyev focused his efforts on improving the quality of training of the population, including lowering tuition prices, increasing teachers’ salaries and improving the quality of the material and technical base of schools. Projects have also been launched to create new university campuses, develop technology and introduce international teaching standards.
Mirziyoyev has also placed great emphasis on developing international cooperation.
