Insights on the Business Climate in Uzbekistan
Addressing barriers to private-sector development has been a long-standing ambition
of the government of Uzbekistan, with an extensive programme of reforms that began
in 2017 redoubling efforts to foster the growth of a more competitive and productive
population of private-sector firms. Uzbekistan needs a more dynamic and innovative
private sector if it is to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of the
green and digital transitions, which create a new impetus for accelerating these reforms.
Elaborating on feedback garnered through a small, focussed survey of foreign firms
in Uzbekistan, this report provides new insights into their perceptions of the ongoing
reform process and in doing so draws attention to some of the most pressing issues
facing policymakers and business.
