Uzbekistan marks 28th anniversary of the adoption of its Constitution
The Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan is strong support and
legal guarantee of social development, a bright symbol of Uzbekistan’s
independence. Its adoption became one of the most important stages of the
country’s sovereignty. The Basic Law laid the foundation for ensuring human

The core of constitutional law is the current Constitution itself. The role
and place of the Constitution in any national legal system is fundamental and
paramount. Moreover, each state has a constitution peculiar only to it. It
should be emphasized that there is not and cannot be a universal
constitutional model, the only one suitable for all states. Each state has its
own path of constitutional development. In this regard, the Constitution of
independent Uzbekistan is no exception.
The path chosen by the country and the successes achieved in the
process of phased implementation of the Uzbek development model
recognized by the international community are the practical results of the
implementation of the provisions of the Constitution of Uzbekistan.
Every year, the Constitution Day of Uzbekistan is celebrated on
December 8. It was on this day in 1992 at the 11th session of the Supreme

anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution.
The Constitution of Uzbekistan is a creative unity of domestic state-

streets of the cities are decorated with flags, and the capital of the country
hosts various festive events timed to this date: concerts of pop stars,
exhibitions, educational events, sports and charity events, and others.
In recent years, legal literacy in Uzbekistan has been increasing. It is
especially pleasing that President Shavkat Mirziyoyev pays serious attention
to this issue, pursues an open policy, as a result of which the personal rights
and freedoms of every citizen are ensured, normative acts are adopted
aimed at increasing the legal literacy of the population, and practical work is
being carried out in this direction.
The foreign policy of Uzbekistan is also regulated by a separate article
of the Constitution and the government of the country, headed by Sh.M.
Mirziyoyev, is carrying out colossal work aimed at developing bilateral
relations with various countries of the world, including Pakistan. An active
foreign policy opens up new vectors for the development of “ziyorat-tourism”
for Pakistanis, since Uzbekistan has various Muslim shrines and
mausoleums of prominent theologians like Imam Bukhari and Imam At-
