We must openly admit that we have not yet achieved the results that people have outlined and are waiting for. A resolution of the President “On additional measures of improving activities of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan” was adopted on November 27 in order to intensify this work, raising it to a new level.
In accordance with this resolution, the executive structure of the Cabinet of Ministers was reorganized, new complexes and the ministry were established in order to ensure effective and productive work of deputies of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan, heads of structural subdivisions of the government, increase their personal responsibility.

Speaking about the reasons of these important changes, the President of our country drew particular attention to the following issues.
