Kirsan Ilyumzhinov opened the 3rd stage of Women's Grand Prix in Uzbekistan 

The 3rd Women's Grand Prix stage has been opened at the Gallery of Fina Art in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.  

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov attended the opening ceremony: 

"It has already become a good tradition to hold this kind of events in Uzbekistan," FIDE president noted. "The Uzbekistan Chess Federation is developing dinamically. First time Uzbekistan hosted Grand Prix Series was in 2012 - the second stage of the ongoing men's Grand Prix. Last year we together with Fund Forum and Uzbekistan Chess Federation planned organizing the 3rd stage of women's Grand Prix, which we have just opened. I think it's too early to announce the plans for the next year, but I should add that FIDE plans holding such kind of events in Uzbekistan every year. Maybe those will be Asian Cup or even the World Cup."
