A good investment climate is crucial for the fundamental economic development of Uzbekistan. This study examines the status quo from the perspective of companies active in Uzbekistan and collects and evaluates suggestions for improvement.
Within the framework of this study, the German Economic Team, together with the AHK Central Asia, the Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations and the German-Uzbek Business Council, examined how the investment conditions for foreign companies in Uzbekistan can be improved.
The study makes a total of 18 reform proposals in 5 categories. Each proposal identifies a specific problem and a proposed solution, is addressed to the relevant government institution and shows the expected benefits if implemented.
The study contains both proposals for comprehensive reforms with a large impact and more gradual ones aimed at solving smaller problems faced by enterprises. Both complement each other and their implementation should be started simultaneously: The gradual reforms can deliver tangible results quickly, while the more comprehensive reforms need more implementation time but then have greater benefits.
