Uzbekistan, officially the Republic of Uzbekistan, is a country in Central Asia. It is surrounded by five landlocked countries: Kazakhstan to the north; Kyrgyzstan to the northeast; Tajikistan to the southeast; Afghanistan to the south and Turkmenistan to the south-west. Along with Liechtenstein, it is one of two doubly landlocked countries.
Uzbekistan has an area of 447,400 square kilometres (172,700 sq mi). It is the 56th largest country in the world by area and the 42nd by population. Among the CIS countries, it is the 4th largest by area and the 2nd largest by population. Uzbekistan lies between latitudes 37° and 46° N, and longitudes 56° and 74° E.
The climate in Uzbekistan is continental, with little precipitation expected annually (100–200 millimetres, or 3.9–7.9 inches). The average summer high temperature tends to be 40 °C (104 °F), while the average winter low temperature is around −23 °C (−9 °F).
The Uzbek language is one of the Turkic languages close to Uyghur language and both of them belong to the Karluk branch of the Turkic language family. It is the only official national language and since 1992 is officially written in the Latin alphabet.
Uzbekistan mines 80 tons of gold annually, seventh in the world. Uzbekistan’s copper deposits rank tenth in the world and its uranium deposits twelfth. The country’s uranium production ranks seventh globally. The Uzbek national gas company, Uzbekneftegas, ranks 11th in the world in natural gas production with an annual output of 60 to 70 billion cubic metre. The country has significant untapped reserves of oil and gas: there are 194 deposits of hydrocarbons in Uzbekistan, including 98 condensate and natural gas deposits and 96 gas condensate deposits.
Uzbek cuisine is influenced by local agriculture, as in most nations. There is a great deal of grain farming in Uzbekistan, so breads and noodles are of importance and Uzbek cuisine has been characterised as “noodle-rich”. Mutton is a popular variety of meat due to the abundance of sheep in the country and it is part of various Uzbek dishes.
Tashkent, the nation’s capital and largest city, has a three-line rapid transit system built in 1977, and expanded in 2001 after ten years’ independence from the Soviet Union. Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan are currently the only two countries in Central Asia with a subway system. It is promoted as one of the cleanest systems in the former Soviet Union. The stations are exceedingly ornate.
System of Education
Uzbekistan’s universities create almost
600,000 graduates annually, though the general standard of university
graduates, and the overall level of education within the tertiary system, is
low. Several universities, including Westminster University, Turin University,
Management University Institute of Singapore, Bucheon University in Tashkent
and Inha University Tashkent maintain a campus in Tashkent offering English
language courses across several disciplines. The Russian-language high
education is provided by most national universities, including foreign Moscow
State University and Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas,
maintaining campuses in Tashkent. As of 2019, Webster University, in
partnership with the Ministry of Education, has opened a graduate school
offering an MBA in Project Management and a MA in Teaching English as a Second
MBBS in Uzbekistan: From the past years, there has been a huge inclination of
students for studying MBBS abroad. MBBS in Uzbekistan is one of the worthy decisions
for Indian students to study medicine abroad. Studying in medical universities
of Uzbekistan provides a higher caliber of education, treating territorial
pathology, learning diagnostics, handling the patients, practice in healthcare
and many more.
