The need to ensure transparency in public authorities and administration activities in Uzbekistan, the introduction of modern forms of providing information on the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of individuals and legal entities is identified in the Action Strategy for 2017-2021.
To strengthen the country’s investment attractiveness and image in the international arena, on June 2, 2020, the President issued a decree “On improving the position of the Republic of Uzbekistan in international rankings and indices and the introduction of a new mechanism for systematic work with government agencies and organizations.”
President Sh. Mirziyoyev: “To strengthen the principles of openness and transparency in the management of the state and society, in our daily activities, we must ensure the full implementation of the constitutional norm on freedom of speech, access to and dissemination of information. Initially, it is necessary to improve the legislation on the media. In this regard, I would like all of us to understand that both public control and the media are aimed at a single goal – to please our people and improve their lives. Every government agency must have its page on social networks, provide detailed information about its work, if necessary, every day,” he said, noting the importance of ensuring openness and transparency in our country.
Currently, 114 government agencies in the country have an electronic portal. The fact that 86% of them also have a mobile version creates additional convenience for the population. Also, an electronic subscription system has been introduced on ministries and departments’ official websites to keep them up to date with the latest news about their activities.
