Uzbekistan Country Profile

Speeches Shim

Uzbekistan plays a pivotal role in forging regional stability, prosperity and security in Central Asia including in neighboring Afghanistan. Its natural resources, infrastructure and reform-oriented government holds the potential to increase regional trade and bolster economic growth.

Uzbekistan is a vital U.S. partner in developing an independent, stable, prosperous, and democratic Central Asia. As Central Asia’s most populous country, Uzbekistan is a potential force for regional economic growth and stability. Our programs in Uzbekistan help mitigate pressure from programming works to counter malign actors in the region and build the country’s capacity to plan, finance and implement its own development solutions.
