To assess the economic situation in the country, the Center for Economic Research and Reforms conducts a monthly assessment of the state of business activity at the regional and district levels.

Analysis of business activity in the context of the regions of the Republic of Uzbekistan is monthly calculated by CERR on the basis of operational data (monitoring in all regions of the Republic, according to the data of the State Customs Committee, State Tax Committee, Central Bank and UzEX).

The growth of tax revenues was ensured due to positive changes in the economy, improvement of the tax administration system, including the introduction of new administrative tools, digitalization and automation of processes, legalization of entrepreneurial activity and simplification of the procedure for compliance with tax legislation.

The decrease in exports of goods was observed in Bukhara (-10.7%), Surkhandarya (-7.3%) regions and in the Republic of Karakalpakstan (-16.1%).

In the Republic of Karakalpakstan – the reduction of exports of plastics, pharmaceutical products (from liquorice root) and yarn. In Surkhandarya region, this is due to a reduction in exports of fruit and vegetable products (beans, tomatoes, mash, onions) and yarn.
