October 21 in Uzbekistan is declared the Day of the Uzbek language
On October 21, 2019, a meeting was held in the Congress Center, which was timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of giving the Uzbek language the status of the state language.
The President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev spoke at the event with congratulations to all those present and all the people on this significant day for all.
The Uzbek language is part of the huge family of Turkic languages. A large number of people in the world speak it – about 50 million people. It was 30 years ago, in 1989, that a law was passed, which stated that the Uzbek language was given the status of a state language.
On this holiday, the Head of the Republic signed a decree “On measures to radically increase the role and authority of the Uzbek language as the state language”, in connection with which October 21 in our Republic was declared the Day of the Uzbek language. Our society and citizens received this news with great joy.
The solemn ceremony in the Congress Center was attended by members of the government, deputies and senators, statesmen and public figures, representatives of the diplomatic corps, teachers, linguists and youth.
