Since the first days of independence in Uzbekistan, the upbringing of harmoniously developed young generation was one of the priorities of the state and society. And now, on June 30, 2017, a significant event took place in the life of the country’s youth – an organization was created that expresses the interests of the younger generation — the Youth Union of Uzbekistan (YUU).
For more than a year, the Youth Union has been the very structure that implements the state youth policy, taking responsibility for the protection of the rights and freedoms of boys and girls of the country. The new public organization has broad authorities. Its goals and objectives are enshrined in the July 5, 2017 Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan “On Measures to Improve the Efficiency of the State Youth Policy and Support the Activities of the Youth Union of Uzbekistan” and the July 18, 2017 Resolution “On Measures to Improve the Efficiency of the State Youth Policy and Support the Activities of the Youth Union of Uzbekistan”.
The activities of the Youth Union are supported by the legal framework created over the past year: 26 laws and legislative documents were adopted, about 70 legal acts were amended to reflect the youth issues.
Young people of 33-35 with many years of managerial experience, competent, educated have been elected as heads of the Youth Councils of the Republic of Karakalpakstan, regions and Tashkent city, as well as City and District councils. In the future they may be recommended for the post of khokim.
In order to support the YUU, coordinate the activities of agencies involved in the implementation of the state youth policy, the Interagency Council on Youth Policy was established under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister, and the regional units of the Council — under the chairmanship of khokims. A Commission on Youth Issues was formed under the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis.
