Ex­ten­sive Pub­lic­ity and Sup­port

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - TODAY IN UZBEKISTAN - El­dor Sat­torov

The so­ci­o­log­i­cal sur­vey of the Ij­ti­moiy Fikr Cen­ter on the theme “Cit­i­zens of Uzbek­istan on the Ad­dress of the Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic to the Oliy Ma­jlis” con­vinc­ingly demon­strated that this doc­u­ment was a his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant event for the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem of the coun­try, tes­ti­fy­ing to the lib­er­al­iza­tion of state-pub­lic re­la­tions and real demo­cratic trans­for­ma­tions tak­ing place in the so­ci­ety.

As shown by the so­cial re­search, the ma­jor­ity of the pop­u­la­tion of the repub­lic 84.2% - sup­port the pro­pos­als of the head of state set out in the Ad­dress, which are aimed at pro­tect­ing the rights and in­ter­ests of cit­i­zens, en­sur­ing the rule of law and so­cial jus­tice in so­ci­ety and fully in line with their ex­pec­ta­tions and no­tions of pri­or­ity direc­tions of the coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment in the fu­ture.

Par­tic­i­pants of the sur­vey also ex­pressed their ap­proval and unity on the tasks set by the head of state: strength­en­ing the role of par­lia­ment in gov­ern­ing the state and so­ci­ety, re­form­ing the ju­di­cial and le­gal sys­tem, fur­ther de­vel­op­ing and lib­er­al­iz­ing the econ­omy, and ef­fec­tive so­cial pol­icy.

In the opin­ion of 65.5% of re­spon­dents, one of the key pro­vi­sions of the Ad­dress is mea­sures to fur­ther im­prove the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, strengthen the ma­te­rial and tech­ni­cal base of pre-school ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, schools, col­leges and lyceums, higher ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions.

The study showed that the main part of the re­spon­dents who took part in the sur­vey de­fined as the ul­ti­mate goal of en­sur­ing the coun­try's se­cu­rity the all-round strength­en­ing of peace and sta­bil­ity in the re­gion. In this re­gard, they ex­pressed full sup­port for the pol­icy of the head of state to ex­pand po­lit­i­cal, trade-eco­nomic and cul­tural co­op­er­a­tion, en­hance se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity in Cen­tral Asia.

At the same time, one third of re­spon­dents noted that an in­suf­fi­cient level of qual­i­fi­ca­tion and ini­tia­tive of the staff could be an ob­sta­cle to eco­nomic growth in the coun­try. 28.8% of cit­i­zens spoke about the need to im­prove the reg­u­la­tory and le­gal sup­port for the eco­nomic sphere. A fifth of the re­spon­dents named the im­per­fec­tion of the cur­rent credit and fi­nan­cial pol­icy as a de­ter­rent.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­sults of the sur­vey, the main prob­lem ham­per­ing the de­vel­op­ment of the so­cial sphere is the lack of its fi­nanc­ing: this opin­ion is sup­ported by one third of the re­spon­dents. 26% con­sider the lack of pro­fes­sional staff to be a de­ter­rent, 24% in­di­cated cor­rup­tion.

More than half of re­spon­dents are not sat­is­fied with the qual­ity of med­i­cal ser­vices, a third pointed to their high cost, and al­most 18% - to cor­rup­tion. Quite a few re­spon­dents are dis­sat­is­fied with the qual­ity of pre-school and school ed­u­ca­tion (41%), they, in par­tic­u­lar, in­di­cate the con­ges­tion of th­ese in­sti­tu­tions.

A poll of pub­lic opin­ion showed that the first in the his­tory of our state, the Ad­dress of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan to the Oliy Ma­jlis caused a wide res­o­nance among the pop­u­la­tion. It en­abled the cit­i­zens of the coun­try to ob­tain de­tailed and re­li­able in­for­ma­tion di­rectly from the head of state on the state of af­fairs in the coun­try and fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of Uzbek­istan for the forth­com­ing pe­riod in all spheres. The ab­so­lute ma­jor­ity of the coun­try's pop­u­la­tion - 91.7% - unan­i­mously and proudly ac­cepted this doc­u­ment, ap­proves and sup­ports ini­tia­tives

Shavkat Mirziy­oyev and a long-term plan for fur­ther so­cio-eco­nomic re­forms aimed at mod­ern­iz­ing the coun­try, cre­at­ing con­di­tions for en­sur­ing com­pre­hen­sive and ac­cel­er­ated de­vel­op­ment of the state and so­ci­ety, lib­er­al­iz­ing all spheres of life, strength­en­ing the po­si­tion and im­age of Uzbek­istan in the in­ter­na­tional arena, and im­prov­ing the well-be­ing of cit­i­zens.
