Welcoming the participants, the Chairman of the State Customs Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan M. Azimov noted that at a time when our country entered a new stage of national development and democratic renewal of all spheres and sectors, the significance of our independence becomes more valuable.
Indeed, the greatest and most expensive day in all corners of our country - the twenty-eighth anniversary of independence, is widely celebrated under the motto "Forever prosper, my dear Uzbekistan!"
State sovereignty and independence has created truly unprecedented opportunities for our country and people. Only on the basis of independence we were able to create a solid foundation for a free and prosperous life, our great future.
Independence, which was the centuries-old dream of our people, made our country an equal member of the international community and opened a completely new page in the history of our country.
Twenty-eight years - measured by historical criteria, this is a very short period of time. If the scale of development is measured by the achieved goals, then during the period of the renewal and growth phase, we can witness that large-scale work is carried out in all areas of activity.
The twenty-eighth year of our independence was a turning point in the activities of state customs bodies and is included in history as a period of great transformation.
