Large-scale re­forms im­ple­mented in Uzbek­istan on so­cio-eco­nomic devel­op­ment have been bear­ing tan­gi­ble fruits. Con­sis­tent sup­port for small busi­ness and pri­vate en­trepreneur­ship plays an im­por­tant role.

The res­o­lu­tion of the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try on mea­sures to fur­ther stim­u­late the use of pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties by en­trepreneurs, signed Fe­bru­ary 23, 2017, has af­forded a new im­pe­tus to the ef­forts on this front.

The sig­nif­i­cance of this res­o­lu­tion lies in the fact that from now on, the mech­a­nism of ac­cel­er­ated in­volve­ment in eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties of pre­vi­ously pri­va­tized con­struc­tionin-process fa­cil­i­ties and un­used pro­duc­tion ar­eas is be­ing in­tro­duced. In ac­cor­dance with the de­cree, in­ter­a­gency com­mis­sions on in­ven­tory and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of un­fin­ished con­struc­tion sites and un­used pro­duc­tion ar­eas have been es­tab­lished in all re­gions. They are also tasked with form­ing a list of such fa­cil­i­ties based on the re­sults of the in­ven­tory, de­vel­op­ing in­vest­ment projects jointly with their own­ers to or­ga­nize pro­duc­tion or ser­vice fa­cil­i­ties, as­sist­ing in their im­ple­men­ta­tion, cre­at­ing new jobs on this ba­sis.

In Tashkent, ex­ten­sive work is car­ried out to im­ple­ment this doc­u­ment. In par­tic­u­lar, more than 370 empty and un­used fa­cil­i­ties were iden­ti­fied.

As a re­sult of the work done, the In­ter­de­part­men­tal Com­mis­sion ap­proved 199 in­vest­ment projects, de­vel­oped by the own­ers of these fa­cil­i­ties and com­mer­cial banks, aimed at the cre­ation of pro­duc­tion en­ter­prises and ser­vice en­ter­prises. For their im­ple­men­ta­tion, it is planned to at­tract in­vest­ments in the amount of 541.5 bil­lion soums and $ 33.8 mil­lion, of which 212.2 bil­lion soums and

$ 12.4 mil­lion will be at­tracted through con­ces­sional loans from com­mer­cial banks. It is ex­pected that due to this, about 6 thou­sand new jobs will be cre­ated.

At present 80 ob­jects are fully put into op­er­a­tion, 61 con­struc­tion and re­pair works are be­ing car­ried out at 61 en­ter­prises. At the same time, 26 en­ter­prises en­tered into con­tracts for the ac­qui­si­tion of equip­ment, and at 24 sites it is es­tab­lished. To­tal in­vest­ments were made in the amount of 681.7 bil­lion soums and $ 4.9 mil­lion, 2,590 new jobs were cre­ated.
