Uzbekistan reforms: Activists demand more changes

Most Uzbeks back president Mirziyoyev’s reform process but they complain about difficulties such as finding jobs.

Not long ago, Uzbekistan was described as one of the world’s most closed countries, ruled by a dictatorship.

Three years after the death of long-time leader Islam Karimov, his successor is being credited with significant reforms. But critics are not satisfied yet.
