“We do not forget the entrepreneurs, who have contributed to the nation-wide movement “Compassion and Support”. Our businessmen have supported in difficult times,” the head of state said.

During the meeting, the President gave a separate order to the responsible persons on the quality and deadlines for the completion of houses under construction for the population.

“Do not delay the construction of houses for a whole year, all affected people should move to new houses with courtyards within two months, where they can plant rayon basil and fruit trees,” Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.

In accordance with the order, on May 14, construction work began in the region.

Soon, the President is expected to visit the Syrdarya region.
