Uzbekistan will host its 2nd International Law Forum from April 23 to 25 in its capital city of Tashkent.

Also called Tashkent Law Spring, the annual gathering, according to the Embassy of Uzbekistan, is "a major professional event in Central Asia in the area of law" with the goals of discussing current trends in international law and tackling related challenges.

Under the theme titled, "Vision of 토토사이트 in the fourth Industrial Revolution," this year's forum will include plenary sessions, panel discussions and classes with global law experts.

A tour of historic sites and a concert will also be a part of the forum.

Among the topics to be discussed are mediation, arbitration, advocacy, corporate governance, securities, intellectual property, public-private partnerships, combating corruption and non-compliance, antimonopoly issues, legal education and science.

The embassy said last week the preparation for the forum has begun among Uzbekistan's diplomatic missions abroad.

The first forum in April 2019 drew 1,100 participants.

They included 250 experts from more than 30 countries, including government officials, diplomats, and experts on international relations and the economy.

From Korea, then-Government Legislation Minister Kim Oe-sook attended and delivered a congratulatory speech.

The forum is one of the country's opening projects for this year being promoted by the embassy.

The Central Asian country will separately host the 1st Tashkent International Investment Forum from March 5 to 6.

Initiated by Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev and organized by the country's Ministry of Investment and Foreign Trade, the March forum is expected to draw up to 1,500 businesspeople worldwide.

The embassy hosted a briefing for Korean companies, Feb. 7.

Meanwhile, the two forums will be an occasion to promote the country's booming tourism industry.

A press release on the website for the 2nd International Law Forum reads, "The number of foreigners visiting our country is growing every year."

Citing the U.N. World Tourism Organization, it said Uzbekistan is among the top 20 fastest growing tourism destinations in the world and ranked fourth in the list of countries with the fastest growing tourism markets.

"Worldwide well-known lawyers, local and foreign experts will be able to travel around Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Nukus, Tashkent and Ferghana," it said.

It especially referred to the ancient city of Samarkand as "a pearl of not only ours, but of all Eastern countries" for its great monuments. They range from the Imam al-Bukhari Memorial Complex to Ghuri Amir Mausoleum, Registan Square, Bibikhanim Madrasah, Siyab Market and Mirzo Ulugbek Observatory.

The Imam al-Bukhari Memorial Complex where Imam al-Bukhari was buried and one of the most visited shrines of the Muslim population.

Built in the 15th century, Ghuri Amir Mausoleum is noted with its octagonal dome and is seen as a unique work of architecture in Central Asia.
