Uzbek President gives instructions to expand the provision of electronic services
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev got acquainted with a presentation on measures to introduce digital technologies on 13 July.
In our country, work on the introduction of information technologies is gaining momentum, which increases the convenience of the population. Today, 253 types of services are provided through the Single portal of interactive state services. This year it is planned to introduce 60 more and simplify the provision of over 50 services.
Most importantly, these measures help to reduce the amount of paperwork, reduce bureaucracy and corruption, save users time and money, and increase operational efficiency.
By the decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan from 5 October 2020, the Strategy "Digital Uzbekistan - 2030" was approved. In accordance with this strategy, programs for digital transformation of regions and industries are being implemented for 2020-2022. In particular, 443 projects have been developed by industry, of which 194 have been implemented to date. Of the 1643 projects envisaged by regional programs, 1172 have been implemented.
For example, the introduction of an information management system for contracts in Uztransgaz JSC reduced costs by 30 billion soums. The introduction of a payment system for 360 types of state duties through the Unified Billing System has saved 24 billion soums.
In general, according to the results of the first half of this year, the volume of services provided in the digital economy amounted to 7 trillion 200 billion soums, the export of computer programming services - 17 million 500 thousand dollars.
However, there are industries and regions where this work is proceeding at a slow pace. The corresponding rating shows that in 65 organizations, 116 districts and cities, the digitalization process is not organized at the proper level.
At the presentation, the head of state gave the necessary instructions to accelerate projects and expand e-services.
- The work done in recent years has really yielded results, services have become more convenient and closer to people. But digital technologies are changing every day, new opportunities are opening up. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a "roadmap" for the introduction of new software products in each ministry, state body and region, - said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
It was indicated that there are opportunities to bring the volume of services of the digital economy to 16 trillion soums, and the export of computer software - up to 40 million dollars.
The need was emphasized to increase the types of public services provided through a mobile application to 100, including through the introduction of services for obtaining information regarding the communal, cadastral, tax, customs spheres, pension provision and labor relations.
Responsible persons were instructed to create portals of ministers, khokims of regions, districts and cities, regularly analyze information posted on them.
The joint-stock commercial bank "Aloqabank" was tasked with creating a unified platform for client services, providing financial support to start-up projects in the field of information technology.
