The basis of all our aspirations is to improve people's life, to create the foundation for the bright future of children
On May 16, 2019, the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev arrived in Andijan region to get acquainted with development of the economy and life of the population.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev: actual needs of people ought to shape our plans
The Head of the state became familiar with the activities of LLC Xon Tex City in the city of Khanabad.
For many years, Khanabad used to be a closed town with underdeveloped manufacturing industry. Many facilities here were neglected. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, visiting the city on 2 June 2017, got acquainted with socio-economic conditions and elaborated measures for a radical improvement of the situation.
To this end, a program was devised for integrated development of the city of Khanabad in 2017-2019. It includes more than 3.2 thousand projects, and 500 billion soums were allocated. As a result, many enterprises were put into operation, the locals were provided with job.
The facilities of the automobile enterprise No. 4 in Ankhor makhalla were inactive for many years. Its buildings and territory thus were granted to entrepreneurs at a “zero” cost, and the latter were provided with organizational and financial support. Now, the area is home to 13 enterprises employing a total of 685 people.
One of them is Xon Tex City LLC. Commissioned last year, the company manufactures 50 types of ready-made clothing in more than 300 models. It is planned to export products for 500 thousand dollars a year. Crucially, about 300 unemployed women are now recruited here.
“All our actions, decrees and resolutions are built around the goal of improving the lives of our people, creating the foundation for our children’s future. The changes that have taken place here, and that you are satisfied with life, make me happy. The objective of the current trip to Andijan region is to draw up plans proceeding from the real needs of people, and take measures to ensure they are executed properly,” Shavkat Mirziyoyev insisted.
The President visits Khanabad sanatorium
In Khanabad, known for its picturesque nature, construction of a sanatorium had once begun. Nevertheless, the works eventually failed to reach completion. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, visiting this place on 2 June 2017, ordered to improve the territory of the health resort and create conditions conducive for recreation.
Thus, a modern sanatorium with 180 beds was commissioned here last year. All the amenities are created to get rest here in treatment buildings, standard rooms, semi-suites and suites, as well as 6 apartments.
Located at an altitude of 850 meters above the sea level, the sanatorium specializes in treatment of diseases of respiratory tract, nervous and cardiovascular systems. Services have been established using mineral baths, physiotherapy, electrophoresis, galvanization, acupuncture, dentistry, cosmetology, and halotherapy.
President Shavkat Mirziyoyev reviewed the conditions in the health resort. He noted the importance of building guest houses here from lightweight structures. This will reduce the cost and raise the availability of services, provide more people with jobs.
