GovernmentSpeak: Uzbekistan and Samarkand – ‘Rebirth’ of the Silk Road

For centuries, Uzbekistan, and the city of Samarkand in particular, was a major crossroad in the ancient Silk Road which connected China and Europe through Central Asia. Today, Uzbekistan is set to revive its past glories as a key interconnection thanks to the vision and aspirations of its President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

Join VOA TV as we speak to two officials who are playing a role in the “rebirth of the Silk Road”.

Farkhod Fayzillaev – Adviser to the Chair of the Tourism Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan – highlights how Uzbekistan is gearing up to be a major tourism destination through upgrading infrastructure and partnering in investors.

And Sabirov Sheroz Ilkhomovich – Head of Regional Investment, Industrial and Trade Development of Samarkand Region – reveals the efforts being made to drive investments and industry into Samarkand, which is itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a testament to the country’s unique blend of ancient heritage and modern sensibilities.
