In our country, special importance is attached to the development of information technology. Over the past five years, US$2 billion has been directed to this sector, including US$700 million in direct investment. IT parks have been organized in all regions, and a special tax regime has been introduced for them. Thanks to this, 14 thousand young people were provided with highly paid jobs. In addition, the number of self-employed specialists in this field has reached 43,000 people. This year alone, 134 new IT companies have appeared in our country, including 50 foreign ones, and the number of exporting enterprises has doubled. The leader in this regard is the Technological Park of Software Products and Information Technologies, located in Mirzo-Ulugbek district of the capital. At first, the park began its activities in a two-story building, which today has turned into a majestic high-rise building.
Both the number of IT park residents and the range of services they provide are expanding. For 6 months of this year, they exported services worth US$53 million. This figure is expected to exceed US$100 million by the end of the year.
