SHAVKAT MIRZIYOYEV: THERE ARE NO INITIATIVES AND PRACTICAL ACTIONS

At the meeting devoted to the analysis of the ongoing activities on reducing the volume of imports and expanding production of localized products, an increase in imports of a number of economic associations of goods, production of which has already been mastered in Uzbekistan was noted. In 2017, such products were imported for $185 million, in January this year – $65 million.

Last year, “Uztukimachiliksanoat” Association (textile industry) imported LED lamps, floodlights and other goods worth $9 million, NHC “Uzbekneftgaz” (oil and gas industry) – steel pipes, cables, heating boilers, electrodes for $2 million, JSC “Uzbekenergo” (energy industry) – steel wires and cars for 800 thousand dollars.

At the meeting, ongoing activities on localization of equipment and components in these and other industries were discussed.

For 10-15 years, we are talking about organizing in our country of equipment production and wear parts necessary for branches. But there are no initiatives and practical actions. Leaders of a number of spheres do not think about localization, choose the easy way and import necessary products from abroad. This takes currency funds, which are difficult to obtain in current conditions of competition, said President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
