23 Feb 2015

The ICT Committee of Uzbekistan’s parliament (Oliy Majilis) has held a session to discuss plans for new legislation for the sector in 2015, UzDaily writes. Up for consideration in the coming year is a draft law on e-government, intended to improve the effectiveness and transparency of state agencies, and an update to existing e-commerce legislation. A key focus for the committee will be a new bill designed to protect young people from accessing material which will ‘harm their physical and spiritual development.’ Finally, the MPs will also discuss changes to several other laws, including those on the management of the nation’s radio spectrum resources.
