In Tashkent, Samarkand and Fergana regions, it was instructed to create clusters of electrical engineering on the model of the Technopark in the capital.

In addition, the head of state ordered to deepen the processing of local copper for the supply of competitive finished products abroad. By the end of the year, it is necessary to ensure the processing within the country of 50% of the volume of metal, by 2026 – 70% .

A new copper cluster will be created near Akhangaran , which includes 12 projects worth $168 million . Its launch will ensure the processing of 90,000 tons of copper.

Mirziyoyev stressed the importance of bringing the export of electrical equipment to $1 billion by the end of 2023. For this, the assembly of household appliances will be organized in the mode of processing on the customs territory – 20 billion soums will be provided to expand its exports.

It was instructed to strictly control the introduction of labeling for household appliances , approved in early April. This will prevent the import of low-quality and counterfeit goods.

Research and development centers (R&D, R&D) will be established at the main enterprises of the industry . They will be provided with grants up to 10 billion soums, as well as tax benefits:

  • social tax – at a rate of 1%;
  • land and property taxes – 1% of the calculated amount.
