“Tashkent region has huge economic potential, but the existing opportunities have not been fully utilized” – Shavkat Mirziyoyev

In the city of Nurafshon, a meeting was held with participation of activists of the Tashkent region, khokims and heads of sectors, responsible persons of republican departments.

“Khokim will not be the chairman of the council of people's deputies. During two years, I gave the deputies great opportunities. They only raise hands. The leader must be a patriot. Which of you loves the nation?” the president said.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev also noted that the region has huge economic potential, but the existing reserves and opportunities have not been fully utilized. The industry still depends on several large enterprises. The level of development of industrial production in the Buka, Pskent, Akhangaran, Bekabad, Kuyichirchik, Akkurgan and Chinaz districts remains low. The volume of services per capita in the Kuyichirchik, Bekabad, Akhangaran, Pskent and Buka districts is 2-3 times lower than the average throughout the republic.

According to the press service, at the meeting, topical issues of entrepreneurship and agriculture, job creation and improvement of the social sphere were addressed.
