Abstract. Today, tourism is considered one of the main types of economic activity that brings income to the world economy. This sector not only plays a significant role in the domestic economy of the country but also occupies a prominent place in the economies of certain regions. In 2020, during the pandemic, the services sector, especially tourism, suffered the greatest losses, as demand for tourist services sharply decreased during this period. However, despite this, attention to the development of the tourism sector did not diminish. It is possible to increase the influx of foreign tourists by developing the tourist infrastructure of our country to a sufficient level. Tourism has a significant impact on important sectors such as transport and communications, construction, agriculture, and the production of consumer goods, serving as a unique catalyst for socio-economic development. Today, in Uzbekistan, state policy pays special attention to the development of tourism. This article discusses the impact of developing tourism on the economic development of our country and analyzes trends in this field.
