The first ques­tion on the agenda of the ses­sion, the draft law of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan “On Sci­ence” caused a lively dis­cus­sion of peo­ple’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the lower house of the Oliy Ma­jlis.

It was em­pha­sized that con­sid­ered in the first read­ing, it was de­vel­oped within the frame­work of the Ac­tion Strat­egy in the Year of Sup­port for Ac­tive En­ter­prise, In­no­va­tive Ideas and Tech­nolo­gies.

The bill de­fines the pow­ers of bod­ies ex­er­cis­ing pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion in sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal ar­eas, mea­sures for so­cial sup­port and stim­u­la­tion of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the academia, as well as state sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise, com­pre­hen­sive as­sess­ment and mon­i­tor­ing of sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal level, eco­nomic ef­fi­ciency and prac­ti­cal im­por­tance of sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal re­sults. An­other es­sen­tial as­pect is that the draft law iden­ti­fies the main prin­ci­ples, sources and forms of fi­nanc­ing sci­en­tific and sci­en­tific-tech­ni­cal ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ac­cord­ing to the deputies, the adop­tion of this draft law will en­sure the stream­lin­ing of le­gal, fi­nan­cial, so­cio-eco­nomic re­la­tions in sci­en­tific and sci­en­tific-tech­ni­cal fields.

At the same time, bring­ing to­gether the norms reg­u­lat­ing re­la­tions in the sci­en­tific and sci­en­tific-tech­ni­cal spheres will serve to create the le­gal en­vi­ron­ment in the field of sci­en­tific and sci­en­tific-tech­ni­cal ac­tiv­i­ties, as well as to en­sure the ef­fec­tive in­ter­ac­tion of all par­tic­i­pants in sci­en­tific and sci­en­tific-tech­ni­cal ac­tiv­i­ties.

After stormy dis­cus­sions, the bill was passed on first read­ing.

Then the lower house mem­bers be­gan to con­sider the draft law “On Tourism” in a new edi­tion.

At present, for the ac­cel­er­ated de­vel­op­ment of tourism, which is be­com­ing one of the im­por­tant sec­tors of the coun­try’s econ­omy, a com­pre­hen­sive and deeply thought-out le­gal frame­work is needed. It should be noted that the Law of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan “On Tourism”, adopted 19 years ago, does not fully meet mod­ern re­quire­ments.

Ac­cord­ing to the law­mak­ers, the draft law “On Tourism” pre­sented to the deputies in the first read­ing will create the le­gal con­di­tions for the for­ma­tion of a mod­ern, highly ef­fi­cient and com­pet­i­tive tourism in­dus­try in the coun­try.

It re­flects the norms aimed at cre­at­ing or­ga­ni­za­tional con­di­tions for the de­vel­op­ment of do­mes­tic and for­eign tourism in Uzbek­istan, en­sur­ing sta­bil­ity, clar­ity and flex­i­bil­ity of le­gal reg­u­la­tion of re­la­tions in the field, as well as in­creas­ing in­come from tourism to bud­gets of all lev­els by cre­at­ing le­gal mech­a­nisms en­sur­ing trans­parency ac­tiv­i­ties of sub­jects in the field of tourism, en­sur­ing con­so­nance, the com­pli­ance of our laws with in­ter­na­tional le­gal doc­u­ments reg­u­lat­ing re­la­tions in the travel in­dus­try.

As the leg­is­la­tors noted, the adop­tion of the draft law spec­i­fies the le­gal sta­tus of en­ti­ties of tourism ac­tiv­i­ties, clearly de­fines the pow­ers of state au­thor­i­ties in the field of state tourism reg­u­la­tion. This, in turn, will serve to fur­ther build up the tourist po­ten­tial of the coun­try’s re­gions, in­crease the rev­enue of lo­cal bud­gets.

In ad­di­tion, the par­lia­men­tar­i­ans dis­cussed in the first read­ing other bills in­cluded in the ses­sion agenda.
