BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has said Chinese President Xi Jinping's book on state governance will give Uzbek readers much inspiration and guidance on the rule of a country, a market economy and the protection of public interests.

Mirziyoyev, who is in Beijing to attend the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation scheduled for Sunday and Monday, has written a foreword for the Uzbek language edition of the book, "Xi Jinping: The Governance of China," which has been published recently in Uzbekistan.

At the beginning of the foreword, Mirziyoyev pointed out that China and Uzbekistan have a long history of friendship, which dates back to the ancient Silk Road period of more than 2,000 years ago. The two countries have enjoyed fruitful cooperation in various fields such as trade, technology and culture.

Since the two countries established diplomatic ties more than 25 years ago, the two sides have set up a mechanism of regular exchanges of visits at country and government levels. President Xi's state visit in June 2016 elevated the China-Uzbekistan relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership, Mirziyoyev wrote.

The president mentioned in particular that China has provided consistent support for Uzbekistan's modernization and economic reform. China has also made investment in many sectors of the country including manufacturing, energy, transportation, telecommunications and agriculture, to which he gave high praises to the significance of relevant programs.

Thus, the book of President Xi, who has been widely recognized as a great leader with global influence, has sparked strong the interest of readers in Uzbekistan and other countries around the world, as it elaborates on China's well-considered domestic and foreign policies, development blueprint and future goals set to achieve "the Chinese dream" with a collection of Xi's public speeches, addresses, conversations and Q&A sessions, according to the foreword.

"I have read the content-rich book with great interest, which manifests in-depth political wisdoms of a great power and offers penetrating analysis of the complicated globalization that the world has been undergoing," Mirziyoyev wrote. "I am very happy and honored to introduce the book to Uzbek readers."

Today's China has wowed the world with its steady and rapid development, as it has become one of the locomotives for the global economy within a rather short period of time, Mirziyoyev said in the foreword.

At the end of the foreword, the Uzbek president highly recommends the "insightful and content-rich book" of President Xi, as it would serve as an inspiration and a practical guide book on state governance, on a sustainable market economy with national characteristics, and on safeguarding people's overall interests for Uzbek leaders, experts, mass media professionals, as well as students and teachers of institutions of higher learning.

"I fully believe that the book will help cement the time-honored Uzbekistan-China friendship, deepen bilateral cooperation and enhance exchanges between the two peoples," he wrote.
