Uzbekistan has a unique, rich culture that has been influenced throughout its history by different groups and empires competing for control over the territory. The Persians, Macedonian Greeks, Mongols, Soviets and Russians have each passed through the area and left their lasting marks on the culture and its people. Art forms such as suzani embroidery and ikat reflect the significant cultural influence that is established within Uzbek crafts. Uzbekistan’s natural resources and growing economy make the country an important member of several international organizations, such as the Commonwealth of Independent States and most notably, the United Nations.
