Uzbekistan Today (English) - - TODAY IN UZBEKISTAN -

In the Leg­isla­tive Cham­ber of the Oliy Ma­jlis, the in­for­ma­tion of the Min­is­ter of Em­ploy­ment and La­bor Re­la­tions on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Em­ploy­ment Pro­gram for the year 2017 based on the ob­jec­tives of the Strat­egy of Ac­tions was heard.

It was noted that from Jan­uary to Au­gust this year 521.5 thou­sand peo­ple was em­ployed due to the ef­fec­tive use of the ter­ri­tory of the re­pub­lic and the ex­ist­ing po­ten­tial of eco­nomic spheres, in par­tic­u­lar, the devel­op­ment of in­dus­try, ser­vices and ser­vices, the com­mis­sion­ing of new fa­cil­i­ties in the con­struc­tion of res­i­den­tial houses, small busi­nesses, farm­ing and dehkan farms.

Dur­ing the process of study­ing the real sit­u­a­tion in places deputies crit­i­cally eval­u­ated the work in this di­rec­tion. Pas­sive ac­tiv­ity of lo­cal state bod­ies in ex­e­cu­tion of the leg­is­la­tion con­cern­ing em­ploy­ment of the pop­u­la­tion is un­der­lined. In par­tic­u­lar, in 34 re­gions of the re­pub­lic where there was a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion in the la­bor mar­ket, the un­em­ploy­ment rate raised.

In ad­di­tion, in some ar­eas and cities there were made mis­takes and a for­mal ap­proach to cre­at­ing jobs in ac­cor­dance with the ap­proved tar­geted pro­grams for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Em­ploy­ment pro­gram. Thus, about 9 thou­sand jobs were not cre­ated in Bakhmal, Do’stlik, Navba­hor, Gulis­ton, Saykhuno­bod dis­tricts.

The par­lia­men­tar­i­ans em­pha­sized that the Min­istry of Em­ploy­ment and La­bor Re­la­tions, in con­junc­tion with other state bod­ies, is not us­ing enough op­por­tu­ni­ties to mon­i­tor and an­a­lyze the re­al­iza­tion of the Em­ploy­ment pro­gram for 2017. There was un­der­lined the need to im­prove the process of as­sess­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the pa­ram­e­ters of this pro­gram.

At the same time, the deputies drew at­ten­tion to the fact that in the coun­try it was es­tab­lished a reg­u­la­tory frame­work that is con­sis­tent with in­ter­na­tional le­gal prin­ci­ples aimed at ob­serv­ing the la­bor rights of cit­i­zens, there are ef­fec­tively im­ple­mented in­ter­na­tional con­ven­tions to which Uzbek­istan joined, as­sess­ment process for the re­al­iza­tion of leg­isla­tive acts in this area are im­proved.

Also dur­ing the event, spe­cific sug­ges­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions were made on the need to con­duct in­ven­tory of ex­ist­ing leg­isla­tive acts, pre­vent forced la­bor, and widely use par­lia­men­tary and deputy con­trol over these is­sues.

As a re­sult of the par­lia­men­tary hear­ing, a de­ci­sion was made to en­sure un­ques­tion­ing ex­e­cu­tion of the pro­gram in the con­text of re­gions and struc­tures, to in­ten­sify in­ter­ac­tion be­tween deputies and ex­ec­u­tive bod­ies, to cre­ate jobs through the ad­vance­ment of small busi­ness, fam­ily en­trepreneur­ship and hand­i­crafts.
