As 2023 is marked as the European Year of Skills, I am very happy to see people showing interest in our projects today. Among the programmes funded by the European Union in Uzbekistan are those ensuring that women, youth and the rural population have access to education.

Robert Schuman delivered this historic speech on 9 May 1950 which led to the creation of the European Union. It is celebrated every year because it is about peace and unity in diversity in Europe.
