Additional tasks for space industry development defined at the meeting chaired by the President of Uzbekistan

TASHKENT, November 24. /“Dunyo” IA/. Yesterday, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev became familiar with the presentation of additional measures aimed at developing space activities, reports “Dunyo” IA correspondent.


According to the press service of the President of Uzbekistan, as is known, according to the Presidential Decree of August 30, 2019, the Uzbekspace Agency was established under the Cabinet of Ministers. Over the past period, several measures to form a regulatory legal framework and create the necessary infrastructure in the industry have been undertaken. However, the progress does not meet the scale and trends in the development of the world space economy.

For instance, the world's total market for space services was worth close to $400 billion in 2020. A large share is occupied by remote Earth sensing, satellite communications, and navigation services. The need for space services will only grow in the future.

In this regard, a five-year concept and a roadmap for the development of the space industry were developed under the instructions of the President. It defines the goals for remote Earth sensing, the creation of a national telecommunications satellite constellation, establishing a research and production center, training specialists, and providing support for aerospace startups.

It is also planned to assign additional tasks to the Uzbekspace Agency. This is, for instance, the identification of violations in the spheres of the economy by analyzing satellite images, implementing state space monitoring, and preparing proposals for the use of advanced technologies.

The President became interested in the final results of the proposed measures.

It was noted that the development of the industry shall support a wide range of areas, including agriculture and water management, land relations, ecology, and geology. Thus, the level of accuracy in the analysis of types and areas of crops, illegal land occupation, and unauthorized organization of landfills will reach 95%. The protection of hydraulic facilities, subsoil, and minerals resources will be strengthened as well.

The President approved these proposals and instructed to adopt relevant documents.
