Alexander Suchkov, chairman of editorial board of InfoCom magazine and one of the initiators of the event, said that Uzbekistan should hold national internet festival to evaluate web sites of the country. Similar festival is carried out in many countries, he added.

The aim of the festival is to acquaint people with interesting Uzbek web projects as there are over 1,000 web sites in Uzbekistan, Suchkov said.
