Uzbekistan to adopt law on fighting corruption

6 October 2016

The General Prosecutor’s Office of Uzbekistan together with the country’s Supreme Court, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Interior and the National Security Service have been instructed to develop a draft law “On combating corruption” in two months.

The instructions were made in accordance with the decree of Uzbek acting President Shavkat Mirziyoyev “On additional measures to ensure the rapid development of entrepreneurship, comprehensive protection of private property and the qualitative improvement of the business climate.”

In accordance with the decree published in the Uzbek media outlets, the law must be directed at strengthening the confidence of citizens and entrepreneurs to the state authorities, increasing the investment attractiveness of Uzbekistan, as well as preventing corruption offenses.

It is also planned to adopt the laws “On administrative procedures,” “On public procurement” and “On public-private partnership” based on generally accepted international standards.

Adoption of these laws is envisaged in order to improve the legal framework on combating corruption, reduce administrative barriers during interaction between government and business, and ensure openness and transparency of the use of public resources.
