In addition, the head of state noted, the mechanisms of informing the broad circles of the foreign business community and the international community about the results of the economic reforms carried out in the republic through the publication of statistical data in international statistical publications are poorly used.
Uzbekistan intends to complete all work on entering the expanded General Data Dissemination System (E-GDDS) of the International Monetary Fund by the end of next year.
This will allow the republic to provide foreign investors, leading foreign companies and international financial institutions with full access to various economic data in the format in which they are accustomed, and will provide an opportunity to stimulate an increase in the volume of attracted foreign investment.
- In January-February next year, an IMF mission arrives for technical assistance. Until the end of 2018, we intend to complete all work on joining the General Data Dissemination System, - said First Deputy Chairman of the State Statistics Committee Bahodir Mirusmanov.
Today, the IMF Statistics Department is one of the key players in the international statistical cooperation. The fund's interest in statistics is primarily the national accounts, the balance of payments, and financial data.
The International Monetary Fund annually publishes a wide range of data on loans, exchange rates, as well as economic and financial statistics and on Uzbekistan's joining the E-GDDS.
It should be reminded that in early August, the President of Uzbekistan seriously criticized the statistics bodies. For example, according to Shavkat Mirziyoyev, the work on ensuring the completeness and reliability of the reporting data at an appropriate level is not organized at an appropriate level, which makes it possible to objectively assess the level of development of industries and spheres of the economy of the republic and regions.
