TASHKENT, July 11. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev held a meeting today to analyze the effectiveness of socio-economic reforms in the regions.
According to the press service of the head of our state, there is no sphere or industry in our country that would not be covered by the reform program. In particular, over the past 3 years, more than 400 decrees and resolutions have been adopted on the development of all regions, spheres and industries.
The constant demand of the head of our state is to make people feel changes in their daily lives. Accordingly, the effect of reforms on the life of the population is being assessed.
One of such comprehensive studies was conducted recently in the Samarkand region. The majority of respondents highly appreciated the activity of khokim assistants, shifts in the fields of education, healthcare, Internet access, public transport.
At the same time, they openly point out problems on the ground and areas in which transformations are moving slowly. In particular, there are shortcomings in such issues as the efficient use of land and water, electricity, gas and drinking water supply, allocation of land plots. For example, the people’s reception offices of Samarkand received more than 15 thousand appeals related to the provision of electricity, liquefied gas and coal to the population and enterprises.
The meeting comprehensively analyzed the effectiveness of reforms in districts and cities, topical issues raised by the population and entrepreneurs, and suggestions were made.
In particular, they spoke about the need to continue administrative reforms, optimize the number of civil servants, and properly allocate local budgets. Long-term guarantees of land rights, reduction of government intervention and improvement of financial services in agriculture are required. Energy supply systems, cadastre, roads and utilities are being improved.
The President emphasized the need to bring all reforms to the grassroots level, focusing them primarily on improving the welfare of the population.
Having stated that the problems identified in the Samarkand region are typical for other regions, the head of state instructed the government to take measures to study and solve them with a field visit.
