Spain’s leading analytic center Barcelona Center for International Affairs has published the list of 40 key people of international life in 2016 which includes the first President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov and recently elected President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoev.
The list includes the most distinguished political and public figures of the world and non-governmental organizations.
"The outstanding statesman and political leader Islam Karimov was the founder of the new Independent Republic and has played a huge role in the development of Uzbekistan after the collapse of the USSR," authors of the list noted.
High assessment for the first President of the Republic of Uzbekistan has become a tribute to the blessed memory of Islam Karimov, who had devoted his whole life to serve the people of Uzbekistan and the prosperity of the country.
CIDOB experts noted that the Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoev won a convincing victory in the last presidential election with more than 88% of the votes. New trends in the foreign policy of Uzbekistan are expected from Shavkat Mirziyoev, accentuate Spanish reviewers.
This rating shows the growing authority of Uzbekistan in the international arena, as well as the recognition by the world community of successes achieved on the way of building a modern democratic state.
