Public Council: ensuring openness and transparency of activities

In recent years in our country, special attention has been paid to issues of public control over the activities of state bodies and institutions. In particular, the Virtual reception of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, and the People's Reception were launched. The law "On Public Control" regulating these relations was also adopted.

In this regard, the country formed the legal basis for ensuring the openness of the activities of state bodies and created the legal mechanisms for the implementation of a social partnership of state bodies with NGOs and other institutions of civil society.  State fundamentally reformed the system of reviewing the appeals of individuals and legal entities, and the "Electronic Government" system was has been introduced gradually and is being used more and more widely.

A Public Council that was formed at the Agency for the Development of the Pharmaceutical Industry focuses on establishing an effective and efficient dialogue between the state and society, public control over the activities of state bodies, and ensuring the openness and transparency of their activities.
