Shavkat Mirziyoyev:

On April 8, 2021, the President Shavkat Mirziyoyev held a videoconferencing on the priority tasks of developing entrepreneurship in the regions and ensuring employment of the population.

Nowadays, entrepreneurship is a priority area for the development of the country's economy and is supported by the state; many loans and subsidies are allocated for entrepreneurs. The meeting noted that some regional and sector leaders are not able to take full advantage of these opportunities.

- We live in difficult years. Every day you need to look for something new, strive, work towards the ultimate goal. If we do not support entrepreneurs, do not create conditions for them, do not increase their numbers, the local budget will not be replenished in cities and regions. No matter how much funds we allocate, we do not adopt decrees and resolutions, we did not create favorable conditions, everything will be in vain if the top managers do not change their worldview, they don’t make friends with the entrepreneur, ”the head of state said.

At the meeting, held in a critical spirit, khokims and sector leaders were shown the state of entrepreneurship in their regions. The President got acquainted with the planned projects and the number of new jobs that will be created as part of the implementation of new projects.

Khokims of regions, districts and cities were instructed to develop, approve in local councils and organize the implementation of development programs for each mahalla.

Heads of industries and regions provided information on the issues discussed at the video conference.
