President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has visited a general education school and a sewing workshop in Tashkent’s Uchtepa district.
More than 2 thousand boys and girls study at the school No. 238, located in Birlik makhalla. The school building erected in 1969 is outdated. The number of schoolchildren is much larger than the established capacity, so the education process is organized in two shifts. In 2018, in accordance with the Investment Program, a new academic building with 240 seats was constructed here. Unfortunately, there are still many schools in Tashkent with obsolete buildings and small capacity.
As reported by the Press Service of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev discussed plans for construction of new schools in the capital and expansion of the existing ones.
The President noted that in order to boost the capacity of schools it is necessary to erect four-story buildings, and in the meantime it is essential to effectively use vacant facilities. Shavkat Mirziyoyev gave recommendations to raise the quality of educational work by delivering additional amenities for teachers.
Uzbekistan’s leader also visited a sewing workshop organized by the company Kozimjon Rating Service.
The project was realized jointly with Kukcha Textiles LLC. A total of 100 modern sewing machines and other equipment were delivered and installed from abroad. This resulted in an opportunity to produce 500 thousand units of finished knitwear a year. 200 unemployed women were retrained and employed.
The President pointed to the need for expanding the range of products, constantly studying the market and establishing exports. Shavkat Mirziyoyev noted that even more women should be provided with job through enhancing the company’s activities and organizing work in two shifts.
In addition, information was provided about other enterprises commissioned in Uchtepa district.
