Today, a Round table was held on the topic "Actual issues of interaction of civil society institutions with state bodies", with the participation of heads of capital and regional NGOs, representatives of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Uzbekistan, as well as the US Embassy and the Delegation of the European Union.

The event was organized by the Institute for Democracy and Human Rights with the support of the Delegation of the European Union in Uzbekistan.

The main goal of the event is to identify the causes and eliminate existing problems in the implementation of the laws of Uzbekistan "On Social Partnership", "On the Openness of the Activities of State Bodies," and the development of a "road map" for further interaction of civil society institutions with state bodies.

During the round table, proposals were developed to build trust and confidence between NGOs and state structures.

Head of the Political, press and Information section of the EU Delegation in Uzbekistan Mr. Radoslaw Darski highlighted, "the civil society is one of the important sectors, the engine of progress; the results of NGOs work affect not only the situation with human rights, but also make a serious contribution to the social sphere, improving people's well-being and the economic situation as a whole.

At the same time, it is vital to improve and significantly simplify the organizational and legal procedures associated with the establishment and organization of activities of NGOs. Considering the fact that truly independent NGOs play the role of a "connecting bridge" between society and the state and allow timely informing state bodies about challenges and issues in the society, ultimately, the government and the state as a whole will benefit from this.
