    Uzbekistan 6 October 2022 1662

    Saykhunabad district hosted a meeting on measures for the economic and social development of Syrdarya region.

    The main attention was paid to the issues of increasing the number of jobs, developing entrepreneurship and ensuring food security.

    There are 35,000 unemployed and 42,000 people in Syrdarya region who have gone to work abroad. Taking into account the youth entering the labor market, it is necessary to create 100,000 jobs. To do this, the population will be provided with land by reducing the cotton fields.

    It was noted that this reduction must be compensated by a 2-3-fold increase in yield and interaction with the Council for Cotton Growing and scientists.

    An additional 300 billion UZS are allocated for lending to farmers growing food crops. From now on, farmers will be able to receive up to 150 million UZS of loans without collateral. These resources will help create 45,000 jobs for Syrdarya residents next year.

    40 billion UZS will be allocated from the budget to improve irrigation of 5,000 hectares of sown land.

    The region has great potential for food production, animal husbandry and poultry farming. Opportunities were noted for the implementation of poultry projects worth 1 trillion UZS next year, which will double the production of meat and eggs.

    It is planned to create 20,000 jobs in the region through 858 investment projects worth $1.7 billion.

    “Every day we plunge into some issue, no matter how difficult it may be, we find means and adopt a resolution. If any problem is voiced today, we will solve it. If a hokim has a clear plan with calculations, systematically organized the work, there will be a result”, the Head of the state said.

    At the meeting, the Deputy Prime Ministers reported on plans for creating jobs, developing agriculture, implementing investment projects, and improving the social sphere.
