In the “Navoi” free economic zone, the first such a zone in the country, there are 19 enterprises producing more than 100 types of modern industrial goods.
In the electoral programme of the candidate, a number of tasks are specified on the basis of this noble idea: “From national revival to national prosperity”. These tasks relate to the economic, social, political, spiritual enlightenment, judicial, law, information, sport and foreign policy spheres. In the programme, the achievement of the people’s spiritual revival is defined as the basis of economic reforms.
Special attention is paid in the programme to expanding the transport and logistical infrastructure in the “Navoi” free economic zone and adopting systemic measures to promote goods tagged “made in Uzbekistan” on world markets by providing effective support for local production enterprises producing export-oriented products as well as those producing import-substituting products, including through easing the tax burden and providing customs privileges and preferences, subsidies and other forms of state support.
A deputy of the Navbahor district council of people’s deputies, F.Rajabov; the chief editor of the Uchquduq newspaper, R.Qodirova; and others said that processes relating to the elections were in progress on a multi-party and multi-candidate basis, conforming to democratic principles.
