New city in Andijan
The ceremony of laying the first stone at the construction site of the new city was held in Andijan, which was attended by the president and residents of the Andijan region, the press service of the head of state reports.
President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev called this construction a historic event:
— For the past two or three years, I have been haunted by the solution of the housing issue in Andijan. There is little land here, and the need for housing has only grown over the years. There are many families in which the mother-in-law lives in the same house with several daughters-in-law. Therefore, we decided to act with a view to the future and began to build a new city. More than 130 thousand apartment buildings will be built here, and more than 450 thousand people will live there.
Laying the first stone at the construction site, the Head of state said:
— Thank the Almighty that we have lived to see these days. I hope that New Andijan will become a prosperous place for a happy life. I sincerely congratulate all the Andijan people on this historic event, on this glorious ceremony.
It should be emphasized that the project of the new city gives the residents of the Andijan region even more incentive to improve the region. This project can serve as the first step to attract foreign tourists, as well as residents of other regions and regions to the "new city of Andijan".
