According to President Shavkat Mirziyoyev at the Tashkent Investment Forum, four more airports in Uzbekistan are planned to be transferred to private sector management in 2023. These airports include Andijan, Namangan, Bukhara, and Urgench.
In the aviation sector, which was previously entirely state-owned, there are now five private airlines, and the Samarkand airport has been transferred to the management of Air Marakanda. As a result, the number of flights has increased by 2.5 times.
“We are also beginning major changes in the railway sector. I urge investors to actively participate in this,” said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
