We support our partners in making use of their export opportunities in the agricultural sector and developing a modern agricultural production.


Agriculture in transition economies is often characterised by inefficient production methods and insufficient capital stock. Agricultural producers are unable to make sufficient use of their export opportunities and produce exclusively or predominantly for the often very small national market. In order to improve the export opportunities of the agricultural sector, Berlin Economics advises its partner countries on structural reforms in the agricultural sector and on suitable measures to promote exports.

The agricultural sector is an important economic sector in Uzbekistan. The study highlights and evaluates development potentials of Uzbek agriculture, especially with regard to export opportunities.

In order to increase the export opportunities of Uzbekistan’s agriculture, the policy briefing presents some measures. These include further reform efforts, the development of value chains in the country and investments in infrastructure and training.
