With this indicator, Uzbekistan took 44th place in the world and 1st place in Central Asia, and also moved up to 125 positions in the ODIN rating.
On April 9, 2019, a resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On additional measures to ensure openness and transparency of public administration, as well as increasing the statistical potential of the country" was adopted, which served as a solid basis for the development of open data in our country.
In accordance with this decree, Goskomstat was appointed responsible for coordinating the activities of state bodies and organizations in terms of work on the formation, maintenance and updating of the list of open data sets and the timely reflection of relevant information on the Open Data Portal of the Republic of Uzbekistan. In April 2019, the Department for Monitoring and Coordination of the Open data portal was created in the structure of the central office of the State Committee on Statistics.
Over the past period, Goskomstat, together with other ministries and departments, as well as international organizations such as the OSCE Project Co-ordinator in Uzbekistan, the World Bank, UNDP and others, has done a lot to develop open data in the Republic of Uzbekistan. And the results of this work can be seen in a significant improvement in the position of our country in international ratings and open data indices.
