Investment potential of Central Asia

The second day of the Tashkent International Investment Forum continues its work, and in the first half of the agenda, a panel discussion was held on the topic "Investment potential of Central Asia".

The event was attended by Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Investments and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan Sardor Umurzakov and Secretary General of the Organization of Turkic States Baghdad Amreev.

The event discussed issues of presenting the investment activity and potential of Central Asia to foreign investors, increasing their attractiveness and attracting investment flows in various areas.

Investment attractiveness plays a fundamental role in the development of the countries of Central Asia (CA). Macroeconomic stability, mineral resources, a significant domestic market, a skilled labor force, high growth rates of economic sectors and a positive business environment in the countries of the region are key indicators of attractiveness for investors.

Sardor Umurzakov noted that every government, if it wants to attract investment to its state, must first look at its neighbors. Because investors evaluate not only the state, but also the territory on which it is located, trade relations with neighboring countries. From this point of view, the countries of Central Asia need to take a step towards development in unity.
