The president´s reformist activities are comprehensive and embrace almost all spheres of the country’s life. A large number of laws and presidential decrees were adopted, which have the potential to create a breakthrough in domestic and foreign policy.

With Mirziyoyev’s reforms, market competition is gaining new impetus. Antitrust and anti-monopoly policies look prudent, yet the state maintains control over the distribution of key resources, thereby undermining competition and other market mechanisms.
