The leadership of Uzbekistan has defined development of tourism as one of the priority areas. To develop this industry, on 16 August, the President of Uzbekistan approved the program of priority measures for development of tourism for 2018-2019.
Today, one cannot imagine any sphere of activity without modern technologies.
