The Uzbek Ministry for the Development of Information Technologies and Communications held negotiations with the representative of the regional department of Deloitte Christopher Armitage which focused on the involvement of Deloitte in developing a national concept in the field of ICT.
In particular, the issue of studying best international practices and applying it in Uzbekistan was considered, according to the message on the ministry's website.
The future concept should cover such areas as telecommunications infrastructure, e-government, information security, innovation, mail, logistics and e-commerce. This will also include the issues of education, training and retraining of personnel.
Deloitte is the brand under which tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in independent firms throughout the world collaborate to provide audit & assurance, consulting, risk and financial advisory, risk management, tax, and related services to select clients. These firms are members of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, a UK private company limited by guarantee (“DTTL”).
Each DTTL member firm provides services in particular geographic areas and is subject to the laws and professional regulations of the particular country or countries in which it operates.
In 2015, Fortune magazine included Deloitte in the rating of the 100 most outstanding companies in the world.
Since 2018, Uzbekistan has refused to approve annual investment programs, preferring long-term investment strategies. The industries and regions are tasked to develop a ten-year investment attraction strategy. At the same time, forecasted demographic indicators and unique “growth points” for each region or industry should be taken into account.
Later, long-term plans for the development of industries and regions will make it possible to compile short-term three-year programs. It is planned to start operating in accordance with them in 2019.
