Узбекистан – Катар: пути расширения взаимовыгодного сотрудничества

Современный Узбекистан и Катар сегодня связывают историческая и религиозная общность, узы дружбы и взаимного уважения, общие интересы во благо народов двух государств, которые создают прочный базис для развития взаимовыгодного сотрудничества.
Со дня обретения независимости особое внимание внешней политики Узбекистана уделяется развитию тесного и взаимовыгодного сотрудничества с государствами арабского мира как на двустороннем уровне, так и в рамках международных организаций. В процессе развития и укрепления политического диалога, торгово-экономических и культурно-гуманитарных связей Узбекистана с арабскими странами в последние годы заметно активизировалось сотрудничество с Государством Катар.
Несмотря на небольшую территорию, Катар входит в число самых влиятельных и авторитетных арабских стран. Катар располагает третьими по величине запасами газа в мире и является основным экспортером сжиженного газа. На примере Катара можно убедиться в возможностях эффективного и рационального использования природных ресурсов, модернизации экономики и использования инновационных технологий. Вместе с тем Катар сегодня – это динамично развивающаяся страна, которая достигла высокого уровня развития прежде всего в нефтеперерабатывающей, нефтехимической, химической, металлургической отраслях. Страна также обладает огромным потенциалом в сферах банковско-финансовой деятельности, торговли и услуг.
30 декабря 1991 года Катар одним из первых среди арабских стран признал суверенитет Узбекистана. 27 ноября 1997 года было подписано Совместное заявление об установлении дипломатических отношений между Республикой Узбекистан и Государством Катар.
Для Узбекистана сотрудничество с Катаром открывает новые перспективы для дальнейшего расширения связей в торгово-экономической, политической, транспортно-коммуникационной и культурно-гуманитарной сферах со странами арабского мира.
В свою очередь Государство Катар рассматривает отношения с Узбекистаном в качестве приоритетных, высоко оценивая созидательный и конструктивный характер политики, проводимой руководством Узбекистана на региональном и международном уровнях.
Первым важным шагом в развитии двусторонних отношений стал визит в Узбекистан в сентябре 1997 года катарской делегации во главе с заместителем министра иностранных дел Абдурахманом аль-Атия.
Дальнейшему укреплению узбекско-катарских отношений послужили визиты в Узбекистан ряда правительственных делегаций Катара. Так, в мае 2000 года состоялся визит министра транспорта и коммуникаций Катара Шейха Ахмада бин Фалих Ал Сани.
В ноябре 2006 года нашу страну посетила делегация Катара во главе со спецпредставителем МИД этой страны Салихом Ибрахимом аль-Кувайри. В ходе этих визитов прошли встречи и переговоры в Кабинете Министров Республики Узбекистан, ряде министерств и ведомств Узбекистана.
Ярким признаком стремления Катара к развитию двусторонних отношений с Узбекистаном стало назначение Ибрахима Абдурахмана аль-Мугайсиба послом Государства Катар в Республике Узбекистан с резиденцией в Тегеране.
В свою очередь назначение посла Республики Узбекистан в Государстве Катар с резиденцией в Эль-Кувейте является подтверждением стремления нашей страны к развитию и укреплению всестороннего взаимодействия с Катаром.
Катарская сторона с большим интересом отнеслась к озвученной во время последнего официального визита в Туркменистан инициативе Президента Республики Узбекистан Ислама Каримова о проработке перспективного проекта транспортно-коммуникационного коридора по маршруту Узбекистан-Туркменистан-Иран-Оман-Катар, свяжущего среднеазиатский регион с государствами Персидского залива.
Наряду с развитием двусторонних отношений Узбекистан и Катар ведут плодотворное сотрудничество в рамках Организации Объединенных Наций, ОИК и других международных и региональных структур. Позиции двух стран близки или совпадают по многим актуальным вопросам современности, таким, как безопасность, борьба с терроризмом, соблюдение прав человека и другим.
Катар высоко оценил голос Узбекистана в поддержку Катара на выборах в непостоянные члены Совета Безопасности ООН в 2006 и 2009 годах, а также в комитет ООН по защите прав детей в 2005 году, Комиссию международного права ООН в 2006 году и Совет ООН по правам человека в 2007 году.
В этом контексте следует отметить, что в 2006-2008 годах Катар выступил в поддержку инициативы Президента Узбекистана Ислама Каримова об объявлении Центральной Азии зоной, свободной от ядерного оружия.
Оба государства располагают солидным потенциалом, необходимым для активного развития двустороннего сотрудничества в торгово-экономической сфере и имеют большие возможности для повышения показателей взаимодействия в сферах торговли, инвестиций, энергетики, информационных технологий, телекоммуникаций и туризма.
Существует еще один немаловажный фактор, сближающий Узбекистан и Катар. Сегодня наши страны, по оценкам ведущих международных финансовых институтов, входят в пятерку наиболее быстрорастущих экономик мира, реализуя масштабные программы модернизации и диверсификации национальных экономик. Усилия двух стран направлены на сокращение доли сырья в экспорте и повышение объемов готовой продукции. Обладающая большим инвестиционным потенциалом свободная индустриально-экономическая зона «Навои» также вызывает заинтересованность у катарских партнеров.
Визит в Узбекистан в октябре 2010 года заместителя премьер-министра, министра энергетики и промышленности Катара Абдуллы бин Хамада аль-Атия в очередной раз продемонстрировал динамичность и поступательность развития узбекско-катарских отношений. В ходе визита вице-премьер Катара был принят Президентом Республики Узбекистан Исламом Каримовым. В беседе с главой нашей республики вице-премьер Катара отметил заинтересованность своей страны в расширении всестороннего взаимодействия с Республикой Узбекистан. Он также подчеркнул, что руководство Государства Катар в ожидании предстоящего визита главы Узбекистана возлагает большие надежды на укрепление связей с нашей республикой.
В ходе данного визита также состоялись содержательные встречи и переговоры в Министерстве иностранных дел, Министерстве внешних экономических связей, инвестиций и торговли, Министерстве финансов Республики Узбекистан и в Национальной холдинговой компании «Узбекнефтегаз».
Важным направлением узбекско-катарских отношений сегодня также является культурно-гуманитарная сфера. В Катаре с большим уважением относятся к великим мыслителям Маверауннахра, внесшим неоценимый вклад в развитие мировой науки и культуры, что служит прочной основой для развития гуманитарных связей двух стран.
В октябре 2008 года в Дохе прошло культурное мероприятие, организованное национальным театром Катара, в котором нашу страну представляли юные узбекские скрипачки Алия и Лилия Бекировы, получившие высокую оценку катарских ценителей искусства.
Также в Катаре была издана книга Президента Республики Узбекистан Ислама Каримова «Высокая духовность – непобедимая сила» на арабском языке, презентация которой состоялась в октябре 2010 года в Университете Доха.
В презентации приняли участие представители общественно-политических и экспертно-аналитических кругов Государства Катар, профессорско-преподавательский состав университета – учёные-политологи, историки, обществоведы, студенты и журналисты. Книга вызвала неподдельный интерес и положительные отклики со стороны участников презентации.
В частности, декан Факультета Катарского университета профессор Аиша Юсеф аль Манаи сообщила, что она с большим интересом ознакомилась с книгой Президента Республики Узбекистан Ислама Каримова «Высокая духовность – непобедимая сила».
«Не ошибусь, если скажу, что эта книга является своего рода сводом моральных, духовных, нравственных и религиозных уложений, принципов и ценностей узбекского народа, которые с великой любовью и уважением к подрастающему поколению отражены главой государства. Именно к этой категории населения обращено произведение руководителя республики. Его слова о необходимости формирования в душе и сознании молодежи здорового образа жизни, чувства уважения к общенациональным ценностям, о воспитании в духе патриотизма, общепризнанных духовно-нравственных традиций заслуживают большой оценки. Нельзя не отметить и не дать достойной оценки усилиям Президента Узбекистана Ислама Каримова по построению в стране демократического, правового и гражданского общества. Не менее важными являются экономические показатели развития Узбекистана, который даже в условиях глобального финансово–экономического кризиса не только сохранил прежние темпы развития, но и ускорил их. За сравнительно короткий исторический период страна сделала скачок по всем направлениям», - подчеркнула она.
Также гостями презентации было высказано суждение, что книга Президента Узбекистана – это энциклопедия духовного обогащения и развития нации и затронутые в ней актуальные темы современной духовности базируются на концептуально-реалистическом понимании их важности в современном общественном развитии.
Все это закладывает прочные основы для еще более тесного развития сотрудничества народов двух стран, имеющих много общих традиций и духовных ценностей. Несомненно, предстоящий официальный визит Президента Республики Узбекистан Ислама Каримова в Государство Катар даст мощный импульс развитию двусторонних отношений во всех сферах.…...

Absolut Vodka Brand Valuation in Uzbekistan

... several approaches of brand equity valuation will be combined, and brand equity will be assessed from 9 perspectives: • Awareness • Knowledge • Familiarity • Relevance • Specific image attributes • Purchase consideration • Preference • Satisfaction • Perceived quality Brand equity valuation was conducted on alcohol brand - “Absolut” vodka. That particular brand was chosen due to alcohol market environment of Uzbekistan, where any kind of promotion of alcohol and tobacco products is strictly prohibited (also known as “dark market conditions”). Therefore, it would be of a specific interest to valuate its brand equity in order to understand whether a company operating in tough market conditions is still able to build strong equity of its brand or not. The research was conducted with two main considerations. First of all, considering the legal and religious environment of Uzbekistan, the questionnaire was designed in such a way that all the respondent are alcohol drinkers and are over age of 20 (see Appendix). The second assumption is that it would not be ethical to conduct such a survey within the university campus. Therefore, the survey was conducted using face-to-face interview method on Tashkent streets. Analysis of findings Awareness Totally, 60 alcohol drinkers over the age of 20 were interviewed. Out of 60 interviewees, 54 (90%) were aware of an existence of...

Household Economies of Scale Case of Uzbekistan

...which may cause the demand of X to change is increase or decrease of the numbers of household members. The logic behind this is that as a number of household members increases, they can share the cost of public good Y, which would free some of their income for consumption of private good X. Thus, the demand of private good depends on household size. Consequently, economies of scale in household consumption arises, meaning that households with multiple members share public goods, making larger households better off at the same or lower per capita expenditures.  SECTION 2 Engel Model OLS estimation In this section, the following Engel curve borrowed from Deaton and Paxson (1998) for the sample of 2948 households living in Uzbekistan will be estimated using OLS. The sample data contains necessary households’ consumption and demographic data from World Bank’s Living Standards Measurement Survey. It is worth to mention that clothing usually is classified as purely private goods, and food has both public and private components. Therefore, it was decided to replace food expenditure with clothing. Hereby, the following Engel curve was estimated by OLS. where wi is the share of private good (clothing) in total expenditures (Ci and Mi are household clothing and total expenditures respectively); mi is income per capita, and n is a household size. Deaton and Paxson (1998) also commented that there are some factors, which are different across households that may......

Qatar 2022

...On 2 December 2010 it was announced that Qatar would host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, after the FIFA Executive Committee voted in a secret ballot in Zurich. The government of Qatar’s successful proposal bid defeated four other candidates to stage the 2022 edition of the world’s greatest sporting event: Australia, Korea Republic, Japan and the United States of America. Qatar, with a population of 1.69 million people will be the first Arab state to host the World Cup. Consequently, Qatar is the smallest nation, both by relative population and by area, ever to have been awarded the tournament hosting privilege. The Qatar bid was emphasized as the only one representing the Arab World (which has never hosted a World Cup prior) and positioned their bid as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the Arab World and the West. Their hosting of the 2006 Asian Games as well as the 2011 Asian Cup proved to legitimize their capabilities of hosting the tournament. Further, its superior financial capabilities were evident in their proposals for new stadia and infrastructure. While the decision on 2 December 2010 brought delight to Qatar, it inversely brought concern and controversy in the West. A number of rival candidates, western groups and media outlets have expressed concern over the suitability of Qatar to host the event, with regard to climatic conditions, interpretations of human rights, press freedom and allegations of corruption.

U.S. Foreign Policy - Qatar

...Chad Meyer, Country Desk Officer for Qatar Re: Recommended U.S. Foreign Policy towards Qatar Date: October 22, 2012 Overview of Qatar         Qatar is a peninsula located in the Persian Gulf. This small country used to be known as a pearling state and has grown into one of the largest oil and natural gas producers in the world. The government is a monarchy and has been ruled by the Al Thani family since the mid 1800’s. The current Emir is HAMAD bin Khalifa Al Thani who took power from his father in 1995. The previous Emir was crippling the economy by siphoning off oil revenues; HAMAD overthrew his father in a bloodless coup and then filed a lawsuit requiring him to pay back the money he had taken from the country. The case was settled and HAMAD bin Khalifa Al Thani stayed in power. In 2001, Qatar settled a land dispute with Saudi Arabia with the help of the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Since this time, Qatar has managed to stay out of the conflicts that have plagued the region as of late. Recently, Qatar has become the world’s wealthiest country in terms of GDP. In 2011, they passed Luxembourg with a per capita GDP income totaling $102,700. The country has plans to continue growth, announcing a plan to invest $60 billion in infrastructure and will host the 2022 World Cup. The country is expecting 18% to 20% growth in the economy as they near the World Cup. This type of growth rate is scary as Qatar has already experienced......

Qatar

...A. Summary. Robert Booth, Owen Gibson and Pete Pattisson have posted an article in The Guardian on Thursday September 26th 2013 about the conditions for migrant workers in Qatar. Qatar has imported a high amount of foreign workers to complete stadiums, hotels and infrastructure before the 2022 World Cup, which is being held in Qatar. A high number of these workers come from Nepal and India. The working conditions are criticized by both an investigation led by The Guardian and the Nepali embassy. According to The Guardian, the workers are working under so horrendous conditions that they lead to sickness and high number of deaths. Qatari unions have warned that, there could be more than 4000 deaths before 2022. The general secretary of The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) Sharan Burrow, states that the Qatari government are not reacting on this issue, and therefore it is unsolved. Even though only few of the deaths have conducted autopsies, he claims that there is no doubt that the workers are dying because of the conditions they work under. He claims that there should be implemented the highest standards for the 2022 World Cup – also in concern of the workers. The Nepalese ambassador agrees with this, but has returned to Nepal. B.

Qatar Worls Cup

...In December 2010, Qatar won its bid to host the 2022 World Cup. In preparation, Qatar will spend an estimated US$100 billion on infrastructure, including a new airport, roads, hotels and stadiums. As Qatar has begun building the infrastructure to host the World Cup, worker advocacy groups and human rights groups have sounded alarm about whether all the workers needed to build the infrasturcture would receive adequate workplace protections. Living and working conditions for some migrants in Qatar are appalling. Long hours in the blazing heat, low pay and squalid dormitories, are a daily ordeal for thousands - and they cannot leave without an exit visa.
