Party holds open dialogue on issues of enriching and further improving state language and raising language cultureAn open dialogue has been conducted by the central council of the Uzbekistan Milliy Tiklanish democratic party and this party’s faction in the Legislative Chamber of Oliy Majlis (parliament) in partnership with the Alisher Navoiy Tashkent state Uzbek language and literature university and the republican morality and enlightenment centre on issues of enriching and further improving the state language and raising language culture.
The chairman of the Milliy Tiklanish democratic party and deputy speaker of the Legislative Chamber of the parliament, S.Otamurodov; the rector of the university, Sh.Sirojiddinov; and others spoke about the history of giving the Uzbek language state language status, the significance of measures being carried out to improve the legal basis of the state language and its wide propagation among the population and the need to strengthen parliamentary and public supervision over this sphere.
On 21 October 1989, state language status was given to the Uzbek language as one of the main bulwarks of national values. The law of the Republic of Uzbekistan on the state language was adopted. In Article 4 of the country’s Constitution, the Uzbek language’s state language status was enshrined. The Uzbek language became a sacred symbol of this independent country and is protected by law.
In the years of independence, consistent work has been carried out to further develop and improve the state language and to strengthen its role and influence in the life of society. Every year, 21 October is celebrated as language day. Scientific research papers directed towards developing the Uzbek language, new dictionaries and books on this language’s unique features were published.
During the event, a memorandum was signed among the Milliy Tiklanish democratic party, the Alisher Navoiy Tashkent state Uzbek language and literature university and the republican morality and enlightenment centre on mutual cooperation in raising enlightenment work to a new level.
