USAID is working with the five countries of Central Asia to accelerate a regional transition to cost effective, low emission, and climate-resilient economies.

The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the dangers to at-risk groups as migrants have become stranded along borders or in foreign countries without work and resources. Many people have not been able to travel for seasonal work or to travel to locations with more opportunities. This puts people, like Razia, at high risk for exploitation. Traffickers take advantage of the lack of knowledge and desperate situation many have found themselves in due to the pandemic. Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and related travel restrictions, the USAID-funded Safe Migration in Central Asia project is working to provide migrants with information to protect themselves and avoid potential exploitation.

The USAID Legal Reform Program has assisted the Ministry of Justice in preparing successful models of an investment agreement and bilateral investment treaties. The new investment agreement has made Uzbekistan more attractive to foreign businesses, while also improving protections for Uzbekistan’s interests in the event of a dispute. The new bilateral investment treaties equally contribute to creating a positive investment climate for foreign businesses, as it incorporates international experience and best practices and protects the interests of both parties.
