About activities done by trade unions in the sphere of development of tourism

At this stage of development of the world economy, tourism plays an important role in the growth of the state economy, development of export and investment opportunities and improvement of living standards.

Uzbekistan, as a state with a rich history and cultural heritage, has great potential for the development of this sector. Such historical cities as Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Tashkent, Karshi, Termez, Kokand and over 4,000 objects of cultural heritage as well as diverse natural landscapes provide rare opportunity to develop tourism in the region.

A number of activities have been done by the Council of Federation of Trade Unions in Uzbekistan in this area. In 2013-2015, the trade union committees of the Republic of Uzbekistan have initiated the "Concept" of tourism development within the system of the federation.

Goals and objectives of the Concept

The main goal of the Concept is to develop tourism among trade union committees, particularly focusing on domestic and medical tourism, expanding the network of tourist services and improving their quality to international standards.

Main objectives of the concept:

Subsidiary company, “Kasaba Sayr”, before the Council of Federation of Trade Unions in Uzbekistan has been established along with a hotel  in Samarkand city (“Nodir Samarkand”), a hotel in Tashkent city ("Sayokhat-sari") in order to develop tourism and expand the role of this sphere. Besides, the building of a new hotel in Khiva city has been planned.
