Uzbekistan Today (English) - - REGIONS -

The Min­istry of Econ­omy has called a press con­fer­ence to dis­cuss progress in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the pro­gram Obod Qishloq and ob­jec­tives for the fu­ture.

The prac­ti­cal em­bod­i­ment of the pro­gram “Thriv­ing Vil­lage” was first re­flected in the set­tle­ment of Manas in Dust­lik district, Jiz­zakh re­gion. Within just 45 days, Manas turned into a well-de­vel­oped area. Hence­forth, the ex­am­ple of this ru­ral com­mu­nity plays as a model for the trans­for­ma­tion of the ap­pear­ance of all vil­lages and for the rad­i­cal im­prove­ment of the so­cial and eco­nomic en­vi­ron­ment.

This year, a to­tal of 416 vil­lages have been un­der­go­ing in­ten­sive works. Mas­ter plans were de­vel­oped for all ru­ral set­tle­ments in­cluded in the pro­gram. In or­der to change the ap­pear­ance of ru­ral ar­eas, what is re­quired is, first of all, re­pairs and stream­lin­ing of houses. In par­tic­u­lar, 263 thou­sand houses un­der­went stock­tak­ing and it was re­vealed that 132.4 thou­sand of them need re­pair.

To im­prove the sup­ply of drink­ing wa­ter to the pop­u­la­tion, it is planned to carry out re­pair and restora­tion works for 2 thou­sand kilo­me­ters of ir­ri­ga­tion net­works, and to im­prove elec­tric­ity sup­ply, mod­ern­iza­tion and re­con­struc­tion of 3,971 km of power net­works as well as 2,384 trans­former points.

In or­der to im­prove the pro­vi­sion of nat­u­ral and liq­ue­fied gas, re­pair of 417 km of gas pipe­lines is planned. In ad­di­tion, dis­tri­bu­tion of 48 thou­sand gas cylin­ders was pro­vided for vil­lages, 55 thou­sand cylin­ders have been de­liv­ered by this mo­ment.

Ef­forts are un­der­way to re­pair 2,589 km of roads, in­clud­ing the over­haul of 5 km and re­pair of 2,584 km. At the same time, sched­uled is the main­te­nance of ex­ist­ing roads with as­phalt con­crete, other roads will be cov­ered with rub­ble. Up to now, in the frame­work of th­ese mea­sures, a to­tal of 1,469 km of high­ways have been over­hauled.

On the in­struc­tions of the head of our state, a draft res­o­lu­tion has been elab­o­rated for ad­di­tional mea­sures to im­ple­ment the pro­gram “Thriv­ing Vil­lage” in 2019. It is planned to se­lect out 3 set­tle­ments in each district. In ac­cor­dance with the pre­lim­i­nary tar­get list, con­struc­tion and im­prove­ment works will be car­ried out in 2019 in 477 vil­lages in 159 dis­tricts. It is ex­pected that the des­ig­nated ar­eas will see works be­gin on Oc­to­ber 1 of this year, and the res­o­lu­tion pro­vides for all nec­es­sary or­ga­ni­za­tional ar­range­ments.
