Indian newspaper the Economic Times published a detailed article on the recent International tourism fair in Tashkent, which was attended by a columnist of this publication.
According to the article, the TITF attracts more and more tourist companies from different parts of the world. This is due to the growing popularity of Uzbekistan as a promising market for the tourism business.
Further, the author writes that the Indian pavilion had a lot of visitors and one of the main reasons for this, in his opinion, is the cultural proximity of the Uzbek and Indian people. In this regard, it is noted that the Scythian, Greco-Bactrian, Kushan Empire at different times included parts of today’s India and Uzbekistan, while at other times they were part of neighboring empires. The cities of Uzbekistan like Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva were major centres of the trade routes linking India with Europe and China. Interaction for thousands of years contributed to the development of cultural relations.
The Indian journalist said that historical ties between Uzbekistan and India are actively developing. The author points to the popularity of Indian music and films in the Uzbek society.
