The first international investment forum is being held in Tashkent. The President Shavkat Mirziyoyev outlined important measures to improve the process of attracting investment.
He noted that in order to increase the investment attractiveness of the country, to develop practical proposals to further improve the business environment, regular meetings of the Council of Foreign Investors under the President will be held regularly from 2022.
The practice of direct communication with investors and business leaders in all sectors and provinces, using the crowd-sharing platform and modern digital solutions, will also be continued.
"In general, as a result of our reforms, we plan to increase our GDP to $ 100 billion and annual exports to $ 30 billion over the next five years. The share of the private sector in GDP will reach 80 percent."
"We aim to make Uzbekistan one of the upper middle income countries by 2030," he said.
The head of state said that the pandemic tests that have taken place in the world in recent years, the existing difficulties in the economy and other problems teach to take non-standard measures, work in a new situation and achieve results.
“Even in today's difficult world situation, no one can deny that Uzbekistan is known as a peaceful and safe place to live and work. We will step up our efforts to create the most favorable and attractive conditions for investors.
The most difficult task in the reform process is not just to change legislation or develop different strategies. Of course, these are important, but the most important thing is to change people's worldview and thinking, and I think all reformers in the world should recognize this," said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
