The President of Uzbekistan signed a Decree on measures to further improve the sphere of information technologies and communications.
The document notes that the country is carrying out consistent work on the development of modern information technologies and communications, creation of a coherent system of electronic public services, introduction of new mechanisms of dialogue between government agencies and the public.
At the same time, a number of systemic problems and shortcomings in the field of management and the introduction of information technologies and communications hinder the accelerated development of this sphere, in particular:
first, the telecommunications infrastructure is not sufficiently developed, remote settlements of the country are not provided with telecommunications networks, the quality of mobile communications and the internet does not meet the needs of the population;
second, due to the inefficient implementation of a unified technological approach in the introduction of information technologies and communications in the system of public administration, departmental information systems and resources are introduced fragmentally, which complicates the process of their integration into a single information space;
third, lack of attention to the implementation of integrated trading and marketing platforms, online stores, payment systems, and logistics systems in e-commerce, which becomes one of the reasons for restraining the development of the economy and entrepreneurship, attracting foreign investment;
fourth, the weak organization of work to ensure information security and information protection in state information systems and resources increases the possibility of unauthorized access to information, violation of the integrity and confidentiality of databases;
fifth, the heads of majority state bodies and organizations do not pay enough attention to the implementation of Informatization projects and the introduction of modern information technologies and communications aimed at improving the quality and efficiency of services provided to the population, eliminating bureaucratic procedures, reducing paper documents;
sixth, ineffective measures are taken to modernize postal services and logistics system, to introduce qualitative new methods of work of the national postal operator and to increase the prestige of its activities in the market;
seventh, the current system of training, retraining and advanced training in the field of information technology and communications does not take into account the rapid pace of development of IT technologies, and does not allow to organize an effective dialogue with leading educational institutions of foreign countries for the introduction of advanced teaching methods;
eighth, the absence of a systematic work on in-depth study and implementation of the experience of countries that have significantly advanced in the development of e-government, e-commerce, e-government services, their transparency and openness, as well as telecommunications infrastructure.
