Uzbekistan has created favorable conditions for investors, including investments in the construction of hotels. Entrepreneurs in the field of tourism provided about 20 benefits. In order to stimulate growth in the construction of hotels, an order is being introduced, in accordance with which the state reimburses investors for part of the cost of building hotels. As a result of these and other measures taken to support and protect the private sector, a high increase in hotel construction is expected. If in 2017-2018 about 100 hotels were built annually in the country on average, then this year it is planned that this figure will exceed 170. Similarly, it is expected that the growth rate of hotel rooms in the country this year will be 37% compared to 4% and 5% in 2017 and 2018. Considering, I urge all participants and investors to take an active part in the development of the hotel industry in Uzbekistan.”
