In the Republic of Uzbekistan, successive measures are being taken to develop the tourism sphere, which has a wide potential for solving the most important socio-economic tasks in the near future such as creating jobs, ensuring economic diversification and accelerated development of regions, inflow of foreign exchange earnings, increasing incomes and quality of life of the population.

In this context, the adoption of the Resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan «On Priority Measures for the Development of Tourism Sphere for 2018-2019 is considered as a logical continuation of the state policy in the sphere of tourism and aims at maximizing the favorable conditions for creation of a comfortable economic, administrative and legal environment for an accelerated development of tourism, expanding the economic potential of regions and their income base, ensuring employment of the population, increasing tourist flows to the country, and аctive and integrated promotion of the national tourism product in world markets.

In particular, this document approves the Program of Priority Measures for the Development of Tourism for 2018-2019 aimed at improving normative and legal regulation, development of international cooperation in the area, ensuring the availability of travel to Uzbekistan, development of tourism and related infrastructure in all regions of the country, diversification of tourist product and creation of new tourism facilities, as well as promotion of the national tourist product in the domestic and foreign markets.

At the same time, special attention is paid to measures on creation of a modern tourist infrastructure in the regions of Uzbekistan. To this end, the Program plans to build the recreation areas in the Khanabad City of the Andijan region, five new modern recreation areas on the shores of the Aydar-Arnasoy lakes in the Farish and Arnasay Districts of the Jizzakh region, four-star hotels in Shakhrisabz and Karshi of the Kashkadarya region, hotel complex on the Chimgan massif of the Bostanlyk district of the Tashkent region, as well as organization of a beach holiday on the southern shores of the Tudakul lake for domestic tourism and on the shores of the Aydarkul Lake for foreign tourists in the Navoi region.

In addition, the Resolution provides for the introduction of a system of regular review under the leadership of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan of the implementation of activities included in the Program of Priority Measures for the Development of Tourism for 2018-2019. To this end:

under the Cabinet of Ministers is established the Coordination Council on Development of Tourism for the implementation of a system control over the implementation of the Program, the coordination of activities of ministries and departments to implement it, promptly address and resolution of issues that hinder development of tourism in the country;

the territorial councils established for development of tourism, headed by the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Karakalpakstan, regional khokims and the Tashkent City in order to ensure timely, high-quality and full implementation of the planned measures.

The Resolution contains a number of instructions aimed at implementation of the following measures for the development of tourism:

attraction of tourists in the area of pilgrimage (ziyorat) tourism to the holy places in the Republic of Uzbekistan with solution of logistics issues, including the organization of charter flights;

phased creation similarly to tourist zones in Bukhara and Samarkand of the tourist zones in Tashkent, Urgench and Ferghana, and also mountain clusters in the Bostanlyk district of the Tashkent region;

attraction of foreign investment in the created tourist zones and mountain (foothill) tourist clusters, as well as leading hotel brands to the country for the construction of new hotels or transferring them the management of domestic hotel facilities.

In this regard, it is planned to regularly submit the proposals on simplifying visa procedures and organizing pilgrimage (ziyorat) tourism for foreign tourists. To achieve this goal, a permanent Working Group is being established to prepare proposals for the phased simplification of visa and registration procedures for citizens of foreign countries based on the dynamics of development of the bilateral relations with these countries, the conjuncture of the world tourism market and the emerging international and regional situation.

Along with this, in order to further develop international cooperation in tourism, it is planned that the State Committee for Development of Tourism of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan will develop mutually beneficial agreements and treaties with a number of foreign countries.

One of the most important aspects of the Resolution is also its focus on creating a favorable environment for entrepreneurial activities in the field of tourism. To this end:

the practice of allocating long-term loans (up to 15 years) to business entities for the construction of new and modernization of existing hotels and other tourist infrastructure facilities is being introduced, including the provision of flexible loan and interest repayment conditions, taking into account the capital intensity and seasonal congestion of hotels;

acceptable fees (commissions) being established for the services provided to business entities for the transfer of funds in foreign currency, lease of terminals, collection of cash in freely convertible currency and others related to operations in foreign currency;

hotel being released until January 1, 2022 from the payment of a single social payment from the fund of qualified foreign specialists involved as management personnel, as well as the income of qualified foreign specialists invited as hotel management personnel — from personal income tax.

The present Resolution will give a new impetus to the further development of a tourism sector of the country, because the measures indicated in it will allow to increase the number of foreign tourists and the volume of export of tourist services, enhance the employment level through the creation of new jobs in the industry and increase the number of hotels, other accommodation facilities and subjects of tourist activity.
