Mubin started his career at the Central Bank of Uzbekistan, in December 1996, first as Economist in the Monetary Policy Department and he was promoted to Leading Economist a year later. While working for the Central Bank, Mubin enrolled in the Tashkent Financial Institute from which he received a Diploma of Economics in 2001. Eager to pursue even further studies, Mubin applied for GRIPS and was admitted into the Transition Economy Program in 2001 from which he graduated with a Master of Public Policy a year later. Upon returning to Uzbekistan Mubin continued his career in the Central Bank where he gradually worked his way up in the Monetary Policy Department to finally become Director of the Department in September 2006. His hard work, dedicated studies and determination have been paying off; Mubin was appointed Deputy Minister of Finance of the Republic of Uzbekistan in May 2008, a position he still holds today.


Below is a message from Mubin on his experience in GRIPS:
“Thanks to this program, I obtained a good knowledge in macroeconomics and microeconomics, which contributed to my career and current work. After studying in Japan, I went back to the Central Bank of the Republic of Uzbekistan as Deputy Director of the Monetary Policy Department, then was promoted to Director in the same department. On May 14, 2008, I was appointed Deputy Minister of Finance. I am very happy to have studied under the Japan-IMF Scholarship Program and want to thank all GRIPS professors and IMF staff who provided me with all the knowledge and experience.”
