Abstract. The ongoing reforms in Uzbekistan constitute a large-scale program of transformation of the key principles of the country’s development. The reforms are especially focused on the economy and this is reflected in Uzbekistan’s foreign policy, which is increasingly acquiring the features of “economization”. The strengthening of the trend towards economization is closely linked with the development of such a new component of Uzbek diplomacy as soft power, which is already showing its effectiveness at the regional level, bringing economic dividends as well. At the conceptual level, Uzbekistan's modern foreign policy creates the phenomenon of “multidimensional strategic cooperation,” which in turn puts the dominant view on the foreign policy of the Central Asian countries as multi-vector in question.
