Banks and banking systems are among the most important mechanisms in the development of a country's economy and the creation of favourable conditions for doing business. The internationalization of the banking business poses new challenges for the scientific community to find optimal solutions that reduce banking risks, strengthen national banking systems and improve banking technologies. Accordingly, today it is important to strengthen the banking system and its legal regulation in Uzbekistan. In this regard, it is important to analyse the development of the domestic banking system, including in terms of its legal support.

This article investigates the banking system, bank services and their regulation in Uzbekistan, where the role of foreign banks is not sufficiently regulated and is not attractive for foreign banks. This study identifies the problems of further improvement and liberalization of banking legislation. The focus is on the lack of banking practices and legislation, and on the introduction of new foreign banks in the domestic banking services market. However, the development of the country’s economy and the involvement of foreign direct investments are impossible without a strong banking services market.

It is noted that one of the important conditions for the development of a banking system in Uzbekistan is the formation of an effective mechanism of state regulation and improvement of legislation directed at creating favourable conditions for foreign banks to enter Uzbekistan’s domestic market.

The article examines the implementation of international best practices in state regulation of the banking system and banking services that will serve to modernize the system of banking services, attract foreign investment in the banking sector, and harmonize banking legislation.
