Shavkat Mirziyoyev: 6-7 million people, especially children, were mobilized for “voluntary-compulsory” cotton picking until recently 

In a historically short period of time, a completely new political, legal, socio-economic, scientific, educational and cultural environment has been created in Uzbekistan. This was announced by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev at the congress of the Liberal Democratic Party of Uzbekistan.

“Autumn has just begun in our country. It is no secret that in the past, when we say autumn, we first think of the “cotton campaign”.

Until recently, about 6-7 million people, especially children, were mobilized “voluntarily-compulsorily” every year to pick cotton.

For three or four years now, teachers and students – at school, the doctor – in the hospital, scientists – in the laboratory, students – in the auditorium are busy with their work.

We have achieved this result through sound economic policies, the introduction of effective methods that are beneficial to the entrepreneur and the farmer, including the system of clusters and cooperatives.

In short, today we have every reason to say that a completely new political, legal, socio-economic, scientific, educational and cultural environment has been created in our country in a historically short period of time,” the President said.
