President criticizes sector leaders unable to change their mindset

Under the chairmanship of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, a meeting on the comprehensive development of Karakalpakstan is being held in Nukus.

The event is attended by the leadership of the Jokarga Kenes and the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Karakalpakstan, city and district sectors, officials of ministries and departments.
In the first half of the year, the gross regional product grew by 7.2 percent, agricultural production increased by 5.4 percent, and the volume of construction work - by 45 percent.
The President emphasized that serious problems persist in the region, work on industrial development and job creation cannot be called sufficient.

“I came here not for applause, but to work, to see how the people live,” said Shavkat Mirziyoyev. - Sector leaders who are not able to change their worldview are shackles on our feet. Imagine how happy a woman gets a job? Who will lead the youth, give them the right direction? You saw everything on the example of Muynak. People are inspired by the idea that we can do it. But this is already a completed stage. Now we must ensure such transformations in all areas.

They criticized the fact that in the first half of the year the volume of industrial production in Karakalpakstan grew by only 0.5 percent, and in the Takhtakupyr, Shumanai, Nukus, Chimbaysky, Turtkulsky, Kegeyliysky districts, industry is practically absent. The weak development of the services sector and entrepreneurship is also indicated.

- As a result of the fundamental reforms carried out over the past three years, we have liberalized many areas, eliminated the restrictions that impeded development. And in Karakalpakstan, leaders of all sectors should make it a rule to remove barriers and promote entrepreneurs, ”the President noted.
