Future Growth:
Trade, Transport, and Horticulture

2 Days of intensive networking!

500+ government, business and civil society leaders from Central and South Asia and Europe.

The Central Asia Trade Forum has become an established brand name in the region and beyond. Over the past six years, more than 4,000 business executives, policy makers, and industry experts from over 25 countries have attended the Forum, increasing understanding of trade issues and promoting greater trade volume across the region.

Enhancing the competitiveness of horticultural exports and transport and logistics services

This year’s Central Asia Trade Forum will focus on the competitiveness of enterprises in the horticulture, transport, and logistics sectors, and will work to increase participation in global trade and provide jobs for the region’s growing workforce. As in the past, we will also provide practical business support for SMEs with an exporting workshop describing necessary steps, useful tools, and international certification requirements.

More specifically, the Forum will discuss impediments to trade in horticultural products and unlocking the potential of transport corridors by strengthening cross-border cooperation and trade facilitation. The Forum will help participants jointly explore new market opportunities and new technologies in storage, packaging and transport.
