Specific measures defined to provide employment and boost incomes

President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, at a meeting with Ferghana region officials and public figures, drew special attention to issues of providing the population with jobs and increasing their income.

The head of state stressed the necessity of identifying families wishing to start a business within the framework of the program “Every family entrepreneur”, and of ensuring – within two to three months – the allocation of soft loans totaling 486 billion soums to a full amount.

Ferghana is the land of skilled artisans and farmers. Local traditions of tanning and gardening constitute a ready-made brand.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev said that it is essential to take advantage of this fact effectively and streamline additional projects for manufacturing leather and footwear products, set up a center for leather and haberdashery goods.

It was reported that in two years, clusters will be organized on vineyards of 3 thousand hectares in Altyaryk district, for garnet cultivation on 2 thousand hectares in Kuva district, and for cherry growing on 2 thousand hectares in Kuvasay city. These clusters, along with the cultivation of fruits, will purchase them from the population. To do this, households will be delivered 15 million cuttings of grapes, 10 million cherry saplings and 5 million pomegranate bushes. This will help boost the income of the population and bolster the export potential of the region.

In the coming years it is planned to fully specialize the Altyaryk distrcit for viticulture, grow vegetables in demand in between the rows in the orchards and vineyards, building on the recommendations of scientists from research institutions and Tashkent State Agrarian University.
