‘International Women’s Day is an occasion for us to express gratitude to all women for their attention, care, love, hard work, and contribution to the development of our society. Echoing the words of our President Shavkat Miromonovich Mirziyoyev – caring, respecting and honouring our women is one of the distinctive traditions of Uzbek culture. Ministry of Justice and the International Chodiev Foundation extend our wishes of health, happiness, prosperity and realisation of aspirations to all women of our country’ said Avazbek Madaminov, Head of the Administration of the Ministry of Justice of Uzbekistan.
