Valyuta bozorida keskin tebranishlarning oldini olish uchun zaxiralarimiz  yetarli» — Shavkat Mirziyoyev – O'zbekiston yangiliklari –

In recent years, Uzbekistan, a nation with 36 million inhabitants, has emerged as a significant international player. The country has actively expanded its global trade, attracted foreign investments, and fostered tourism. It’s remarkable to reflect on Uzbekistan’s transition from a closed authoritarian state, rife with obstacles for foreign investors and distressing cases of forced labor, particularly in the cotton industry, just a decade ago.

Mirziyoyev’s Visionary Leadership: Propelling Transformative Change

Born into a family of medical professionals in 1957, Shavkat Mirziyoyev‘s diverse career, spanning academia and various administrative roles, provided him with profound insights into Uzbekistan’s economic fabric. Taking office in 2016, Mirziyoyev initiated comprehensive reforms, releasing political prisoners, enabling currency convertibility, simplifying bureaucratic processes for businesses, and fostering robust global partnerships.

Economic Revival through Foreign Investment

Following Uzbekistan’s separation from the USSR in 1991, the nation inherited a Soviet-style economic structure with outdated industries and an emerging consumer goods sector. Coupled with rapid population growth and limited job opportunities, many Uzbek citizens sought work abroad. Mirziyoyev’s strategic focus was on reviving the economy through foreign investments and privatizing state-owned assets, with Germany emerging as a pivotal European partner. Over the past two years, Uzbekistan attracted over $2.5 billion in German investments, hosting approximately 200 German-affiliated companies within its borders.

Driving International Trade: A Catalyst for Economic Growth

Uzbekistan, known for its exports of cotton, uranium, gold, fruits, and vegetables, previously monopolized the production and export of many goods. Under Mirziyoyev’s leadership, coerced cotton harvesting was abolished, enabling private and foreign investments in cotton processing and textiles. Germany stands as Uzbekistan’s primary European trading partner, with bilateral trade reaching $1.2 billion last year, largely powered by German exports of industrial equipment and Uzbek imports of agricultural produce, textiles, and apparel.

Embracing Sustainable Energy Initiatives

To reduce dependence on fossil fuels and modernize the economy, Mirziyoyev aims to increase the share of renewable energy to 40% of Uzbekistan’s energy mix by 2030. Collaborating actively with Europe, China, and the Middle East, Uzbekistan is embracing new solar and wind power initiatives. Inspired by Germany’s model, the country introduced competitive bidding for projects aimed at reducing electricity costs. Additionally, households installing solar panels receive state subsidies, marking significant progress towards adopting sustainable energy practices.

Future Trajectory for Uzbekistan

Mirziyoyev recently endorsed Uzbekistan’s 2030 Development Strategy, a collective blueprint aimed at doubling GDP, boosting exports, improving education and healthcare, and surpassing global average incomes for citizens. The nation aims to attract $110 billion in foreign investments to achieve these objectives, with Germany expected to play a pivotal role in this transformative journey.

Under Shavkat Mirziyoyev’s pioneering leadership, Uzbekistan embarks on a remarkable journey marked by openness, economic diversification, and heightened global competitiveness, promising a prosperous future for the nation and its people.
