417 projects are planned for 2018-2019 to be re­al­ized in the cap­i­tal and more than 25 thou­sand new jobs will be cre­ated on their ba­sis. Of these, 264 projects are to be spear­headed in the in­dus­trial sec­tor, 153 in the ser­vice sec­tor. Dur­ing the first 9 months of this year, for­eign di­rect in­vest­ments amount­ing to $ 257.5 mil­lion has been fully uti­lized for these projects.

In 2019, by at­tract­ing more than $ 1 bil­lion in for­eign in­vest­ment, 181 projects are in­tended for im­ple­men­ta­tion. In par­tic­u­lar, 38 in­vest­ment projects will be im­ple­mented in the Yunus­abad district.

The head of state noted that Tashkent has broad eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties and should be a model in all ar­eas. Shavkat Mirziy­oyev in­quired about the ef­fec­tive­ness of the projects. He gave instructions to those re­spon­si­ble for the ex­pan­sion of at­tract­ing for­eign in­vest­ment, cre­at­ing new en­ter­prises and in­creas­ing tax rev­enues.

The Pres­i­dent got ac­quainted with the progress of work on the sec­ond stage of the Yunus­abad metro line, which is be­ing built at an ac­tive pace, he talked with the builders.

The length of the Yunus­abad sub­way line un­der con­struc­tion is 2.9 kilo­me­ters, com­mis­sion­ing is sched­uled for 2019. There will be two new sta­tions on this line – Turk­iston and Yunuso­bod.

“The main is­sue is the elim­i­na­tion of traf­fic jams on the streets of the cap­i­tal. And the most op­ti­mal means is the metro,” Shavkat Mirziy­oyev said.

Cur­rently, work is underway on the con­struc­tion of Turk­iston and Yunuso­bod sta­tions and a tun­nel be­tween them.

The Pres­i­dent gave re­spon­si­ble per­sons instructions on the de­sign and in­fras­truc­ture of un­der­ground sta­tions. He noted that the con­struc­tion of trans­port com­mu­ni­ca­tions should take into ac­count the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of the cap­i­tal city and en­sure their con­ve­nience for the en­tire pop­u­la­tion.

Dur­ing trips around the coun­try, the head of our state pays spe­cial at­ten­tion to the de­vel­op­ment of preschool ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem as the pri­mary and im­por­tant link in nur­tur­ing a younger gen­er­a­tion, strength­en­ing the ma­te­rial and tech­ni­cal base of kinder­gartens, pro­vid­ing them with qual­i­fied teach­ers, and qual­ity train­ing of chil­dren for school. Large-scale work is also be­ing car­ried out in this di­rec­tion in the Yunus­abad district.

Be­fore the ar­rival of the Pres­i­dent in the Boghishamol ma­halla of this district, the preschool ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion No. 74, Sevinch, was com­mis­sioned. The nurs­ery school ac­quired a mod­ern look after over­haul. It is de­signed for 275 beds, equipped on the ba­sis of in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies and is the coun­try’s first ‘smart’ kin­der­garten. In order to en­sure the safety of chil­dren, a check­point has been es­tab­lished here, and an in­ter­com in each group. After the par­ents press the but­ton of the group’s in­ter­com, where their child is be­ing brought up, the teacher sends them the child. On the score­board in­stalled at the en­trance to the build­ing, you can see how the child en­ters his group, and watch the classes in each group on­line.

The color point­ers and de­vel­op­men­tal pic­tures in­stalled at the stairs and in the rooms teach chil­dren to dis­tin­guish colors and to count. With the help of col­ored in­dex tracks, chil­dren can eas­ily find their group.

Each class­room has mon­i­tors with built-in ex­per­i­men­tal mul­ti­me­dia soft­ware de­vel­oped on the ba­sis of the “First Step” pro­gram. With the help of pic­tures and in­ter­ac­tive games of this pro­gram, the child forms the nec­es­sary knowl­edge and skills.

De­vel­oped by So­tol Sys­tems by the order of the Min­istry of Jus­tice, it is an on­line soft­ware. Par­ents can down­load it to their mo­bile phone and work with their chil­dren at home us­ing the TV.

The head of state got ac­quainted with the con­di­tions cre­ated in kin­der­garten, talked with teach­ers.

“For us the spir­i­tu­al­ity, knowl­edge, health of chil­dren are the pri­or­ity. There­fore, the state pays great at­ten­tion to preschool ed­u­ca­tion, and this is just the be­gin­ning. Your task is to be able to de­tect the spark of tal­ent in ev­ery child, to give chil­dren a good ed­u­ca­tion,” Shavkat Mirziy­oyev stressed. He handed gifts to kin­der­garten pupils.

The Pres­i­dent re­viewed the project of the mod­ern busi­ness cen­ter “Yunus­abad Busi­ness City”. High-rise build­ings con­structed here on the ba­sis of mod­ern tech­nolo­gies and ar­chi­tec­tural stan­dards will al­low Tashkent to as­sert it­self be­fore the whole world.

It will con­sist of multi-storey res­i­den­tial com­plexes, of­fices for busi­nesses, mul­ti­func­tional cen­ters with shop­ping and en­ter­tain­ment fa­cil­i­ties and ho­tels, parks, so­cial fa­cil­i­ties, med­i­cal and recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties.

Ac­cord­ing to pre­lim­i­nary cal­cu­la­tions, the project cost is $ 500 mil­lion, it is sched­uled to be im­ple­mented in 2019-2023.

The head of state noted that when build­ing a new busi­ness cen­ter, it is nec­es­sary to take into ac­count the ter­rain re­lief, to use ad­vanced world ex­pe­ri­ence. He gave instructions to at­tract for­eign in­vestors, ex­pe­ri­enced de­sign­ers and builders to the con­struc­tion.
