The project aims to find real solutions to the existing problems of poverty, gender inequality and employment in tourism in Uzbekistan. Leading experts from China, as well as experts from Uzbekistan in the field of tourism under the leadership of the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan for Tourism Development, will take part in the work of this project.
Within the framework of the project, a study will be carried out, which will allow preparing a comparative analysis, thematic and summary reports, background information on topics for the formulation and evaluation of tourism policies in Uzbekistan. Also, project participants will have the opportunity to share their experience in the field of management.
Solving the problems of employment and gender equality will contribute to the economic growth of the country as a result of the growth of business in tourism. The project provides educational and awareness-raising workshops and courses that, using the experience of China in the fight against poverty, will help attract rural women not only as tourism workers but also as entrepreneurs.
