Uzbekistan will liberalize its domestic migration system which bars provincial dwellers from moving to the capital unless they have already secured a job there, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev said on Friday, APA reports citing Reuters.

“We have kept our people shackled for 30 years, it’s true,” Mirziyoyev said in his annual address to parliament.

In another move aimed at reducing unemployment, Uzbekistan plans to train a million people in software programming skills, Mirziyoyev said on Friday.
