Se­na­tors, at the beginning of their work, ap­proved the draft State Awards Act in a new edi­tion, not­ing that the lat­ter are the high­est form of en­cour­age­ment. The bill de­fines types of state awards, in­clud­ing the ti­tle of Uzbek­iston Qahra­moni (Hero of Uzbek­istan), 34 hon­orary ti­tles, 11 or­ders, four medals and the Cer­tifi­cate of Honor of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan. Ac­cord­ing to mem­bers of the up­per house of par­lia­ment, the law will serve to im­prove the sys­tem of gov­ern­ment sup­port, in­crease the re­spon­si­bil­ity of au­tho­rized bod­ies in this area.

Then the par­lia­men­tar­i­ans ex­am­ined the Pub­lic Con­trol Law. In the opin­ion of the se­na­tors who ap­proved this le­gal act, it is called upon to be­come the most im­por­tant factor in en­sur­ing the rights, free­doms and le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests of cit­i­zens, strict ob­ser­vance by the state bod­ies and their of­fi­cials of the re­quire­ments of leg­is­la­tion, ef­fec­tive im­ple­men­ta­tion of the tasks and pow­ers assigned to them in so­cio-po­lit­i­cal, so­cial and eco­nomic, hu­man­i­tar­ian and other spheres.

The par­lia­men­tar­i­ans ap­proved the law on the State Se­cu­rity Ser­vice of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan, which fixes the main directions of its ac­tiv­i­ties. They in­clude en­sur­ing state se­cu­rity and pro­tect­ing the in­ter­ests of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan from ex­ter­nal and in­ter­nal threats, strength­en­ing the rule of law and the rule of law, preventing, iden­ti­fy­ing and sup­press­ing vi­o­la­tions in this sphere, con­duct­ing in­tel­li­gence and coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence ac­tiv­i­ties to pre­vent, de­tect and sup­press en­croach­ments on the con­sti­tu­tional or­der, sovereignty and ter­ri­to­rial in­tegrity of the coun­try, pro­tec­tion and pro­tec­tion of the state bor­der of the repub­lic, fight against ter­ror­ism, ex­trem­ism, or­ga­nized crime, il­licit traf­fick­ing in arms, nar­cotics and psy­chotropic sub­stances, preven­tion, de­tec­tion and sup­pres­sion of de­struc­tive ac­tiv­i­ties aimed at pro­mot­ing na­tional, eth­nic and re­li­gious ha­tred, and oth­ers.

It should be noted that the Ser­vice, in car­ry­ing out its ac­tiv­i­ties, re­ports and re­ports di­rectly to the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan. It also reg­u­larly in­forms the Se­nate Com­mit­tee of the Oliy Ma­jlis on de­fense and se­cu­rity is­sues about the main ar­eas of its ac­tiv­i­ties.

At the same time, Pros­e­cu­tor Gen­eral of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan and the prose­cu­tors sub­or­di­nate to him su­per­vise the ex­act and uni­form ex­e­cu­tion of laws in the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Ser­vice.

The se­na­tors con­sid­ered and ap­proved other bills in the agenda.

Also, mem­bers of the up­per house lis­tened to a re­port on the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Com­mis­sioner for Hu­man Rights of the Oliy Ma­jlis (Om­buds­man) in 2017. Dur­ing this pe­riod, over 9,000 ap­peals from cit­i­zens of Uzbek­istan, for­eign states, state­less per­sons, pub­lic or­ga­ni­za­tions, and le­gal en­ti­ties were re­viewed and re­solved. Based on the re­sults of this work, 34 peo­ple were em­ployed and re­ha­bil­i­tated at work, 53 fam­i­lies were pro­vided with ma­te­rial as­sis­tance, 39 fam­i­lies were pro­vided with med­i­cal as­sis­tance, 2,319 mil­lion soums were re­cov­ered in the state’s in­come, 263 mil­lion soums were paid to the ben­e­fi­cia­ries, mil­lion soums.

The re­port of the Chair­man of the Board of the Cen­tral Bank on his ac­tiv­i­ties in 2017 was heard. It noted that the mon­e­tary pol­icy was car­ried out in con­di­tions of main­tain­ing high in­fla­tion­ary pres­sures and tran­si­tion to an ac­tive phase of struc­tural trans­for­ma­tions in the econ­omy, in­clud­ing lib­er­al­iza­tion of for­eign ex­change pol­icy and for­eign trade ac­tiv­ity. In this re­gard, the main at­ten­tion was paid to the ef­fec­tive use of mon­e­tary pol­icy in­stru­ments.

With a view of fi­nan­cial sup­port of sub­jects of small busi­ness and pri­vate en­trepreneur­ship, com­mer­cial banks al­lo­cated cred­its in the amount of 19.6 tril­lion soums, in­clud­ing mi­cro loans - 4 tril­lion soums. In par­tic­u­lar, 2.8 tril­lion soums of loans, ser­vices and ser­vices - 3.6 tril­lion soums and fam­ily en­trepreneur­ship and hand­i­crafts - 490.3 bil­lion soums were al­lo­cated to stim­u­late the de­vel­op­ment of women’s en­trepreneur­ship.

The se­na­tors heard the in­for­ma­tion of the Min­is­ter of Jus­tice of the Repub­lic on the state of le­gal pro­pa­ganda and ed­u­ca­tion in 2017.

It was noted that for the pur­pose of prompt dis­sem­i­na­tion of legislative acts, a sys­tem of in­ter-agency elec­tronic in­ter­ac­tion through se­cure com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels (VPN) was launched.

Based on the fact that the num­ber of In­ter­net users in Uzbek­istan has reached 20 mil­lion, the Min­istry of Jus­tice makes the most of its op­por­tu­ni­ties to bring legislative acts to the pub­lic. The Min­istry’s pages can be reached in pop­u­lar so­cial net­works, such as Face­book, In­sta­gram, Twit­ter, Od­nok­lass­niki. Over the past 4 months, they were vis­ited by more than 100 thou­sand users. Such pages have be­come a plat­form for direct di­a­logue with peo­ple. One of the largest projects on the In­ter­net with 100 thou­sand sub­scribers was the page of the Min­istry of Jus­tice “Di­a­logue with the peo­ple”.

The Min­istry of Jus­tice has stud­ied the state of af­fairs in the re­gions of the repub­lic, tak­ing into ac­count the fact that few have ac­cess to the Net­work, es­pe­cially in ru­ral ar­eas. Se­ri­ous omis­sions in terms of form­ing the le­gal cul­ture of the pop­u­la­tion are re­vealed, which dic­tates the need to search for and in­tro­duce new ap­proaches. Next, the se­na­tors con­sid­ered the is­sue of stream­lin­ing wed­ding, fam­ily, ju­bilee cel­e­bra­tions, fam­ily memo­rial cer­e­monies and events ded­i­cated to the mem­ory of the de­ceased. They are an in­te­gral part of na­tional spir­i­tu­al­ity and re­flect the cen­turies-old val­ues and tra­di­tions of our peo­ple.

How­ever, in re­cent years, fam­ily events have ex­pe­ri­enced such neg­a­tive man­i­fes­ta­tions and vices as van­ity, the de­sire to show them­selves, ex­ces­sive waste, ig­nor­ing the true tra­di­tions and cus­toms of our peo­ple and the so­cial sta­tus of other cit­i­zens.

Im­pos­ing ex­ces­sive costs as­so­ci­ated with fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties af­fect not only the so­cial sta­tus of fam­i­lies, but their en­tire life, the spir­i­tual en­vi­ron­ment in so­ci­ety. The analysis shows that a sig­nif­i­cant part of the divorce among young fam­i­lies occurs pre­cisely be­cause of con­flicts as­so­ci­ated with wed­dings and cer­e­monies. De­spite the mea­sures taken and the on­go­ing pro­pa­ganda work, these prob­lems do not find their so­lu­tion, on the con­trary, their scale is grow­ing.

In or­der to fur­ther im­prove the ef­fec­tive­ness of this work, the me­dia pub­lished an appeal by ac­tivists of the Ma­halla and Nuroniy funds. It called for greater ef­fi­ciency, con­sol­i­dat­ing the ef­forts of state, non-gov­ern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions and the gen­eral pub­lic.

Tak­ing into ac­count that the stream­lin­ing of fam­ily events is im­por­tant for the so­ci­ety, and tak­ing into ac­count the sug­ges­tions and opin­ions ex­pressed by the pop­u­la­tion, the Se­nate of the Oliy Ma­jlis of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan adopted a res­o­lu­tion on stream­lin­ing the hold­ing of wed­ding, fam­ily, ju­bilee cel­e­bra­tions, fam­ily memo­rial cer­e­monies and events ded­i­cated to the mem­ory of the de­ceased.

A Repub­li­can work­ing group for the study of pub­lic opin­ion has been formed to stream­line the or­ga­ni­za­tion of wed­ding, fam­ily, an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, fam­ily memo­rial cer­e­monies and events ded­i­cated to the mem­ory of the de­ceased, and its mem­ber­ship has been ap­proved. Its main tasks are to or­ga­nize an ac­tive dis­cus­sion of this is­sue in the me­dia, in­clud­ing on­line pub­li­ca­tions, indepth study of orig­i­nal tra­di­tions and cus­toms for con­duct­ing fam­ily events in each re­gion of the coun­try. The work­ing group was in­structed to de­velop, on the ba­sis of the dis­cus­sion, grounded pro­pos­als and sub­mit a draft de­ci­sion for con­sid­er­a­tion to the Se­nate of the Oliy Ma­jlis.

The ple­nary ses­sion con­sid­ered other is­sues re­lated to the com­pe­tence of the up­per house of par­lia­ment.
