Pro­mot­ing free en­ter­prise and en­sur­ing its le­gal pro­tec­tion is one of the key pil­lars of eco­nomic re­forms in Uzbek­istan. A great deal of ef­forts are un­der­taken to ex­ten­sively en­gage busi­ness en­ti­ties in the process of so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment in the re­gions, se­cur­ing the timely im­ple­men­ta­tion of en­tre­pre­neur­ial ini­tia­tives and projects, as well as ef­fi­cient and ra­tio­nal use of un­tapped fa­cil­i­ties, land and other in­fra­struc­ture.

The Ferghana re­gional group com­posed of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of re­spon­si­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions has de­vel­oped spe­cific mea­sures aimed at study­ing and prac­ti­cally solv­ing prob­lems on the ground, pro­mot­ing the re­al­iza­tion of pro­mos­ing projects by busi­ness en­ti­ties.

“The lo­cal group formed in ac­cor­dance with the res­o­lu­tion of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan on mea­sures to or­ga­nize the ac­cel­er­ated im­ple­men­ta­tion of en­tre­pre­neur­ial ini­tia­tives and projects in the re­gions, signed 11 Septem­ber 2018, re­ceived 42 ap­peals, 22 of which were re­solved pos­i­tively,” said Az­izbek Ab­dukho­likov, mem­ber of the work­ing group, in­spec­tor of the depart­ment of the re­gional cus­toms ad­min­is­tra­tion. “The rest of the ap­peals were for­warded to cor­re­spond­ing min­istries and gov­ern­ment agen­cies for con­sid­er­a­tion and de­ci­sion at the na­tional level.”

Thanks to the group’s sup­port 6 young en­trepreneurs, who had been un­rea­son­ably wait­ing for funds pro­vided on the ba­sis of the na­tional pro­gram Yosh­lar – Ke­la­jag­imiz, re­ceived loans to­tal­ing 1.2 bil­lion soums. In ad­di­tion, 12 ap­peals by busi­ness­peo­ple were ex­am­ined and solved at the premises; they had asked for prac­ti­cal as­sis­tance in get­ting their sites con­nected to gas, elec­tric­ity and sewage net­works.

“I want to open a non­state preschool ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion with a sports fo­cus,” the en­tre­pre­neur Shah­noza Madaliyeva says. “How­ever, un­der var­i­ous pre­texts, I haven’t been granted a loan. I pointed this is­sue to the re­gional group for the sup­port and de­vel­op­ment of en­trepreneur­ship, which pos­i­tively solved the prob­lem.”

The work­ing group held ne­go­ti­a­tions with the Be­laru­sian com­pany, Brest­mya­so­mol­prom Con­cern, to pro­mote ex­ports of agri­cul­tural prod­ucts grown in the re­gion.

In ad­di­tion, on-site di­a­logues are or­ga­nized with busi­ness­peo­ple. The pro­pos­als on ad­dress­ing out­stand­ing is­sues re­lated to en­tre­pre­neur­ial ac­tiv­ity, im­ple­men­ta­tion of ini­tia­tives and promis­ing projects are be­ing stud­ied. Mea­sures are taken to con­duct fruit­ful talks and meet­ings with po­ten­tial in­vestors.

In the mean­time, 6,250 un­used build­ings and struc­tures were iden­ti­fied in the re­gion, 223 of them are in­cluded in a spe­cial pro­gram for on­line trad­ing.
