Looking ahead: Economic Policy Options for Covid-19 and Beyond in Central Asia

USAID’s Future Growth Initiative project takes this opportunity to present a comparative study “Looking ahead: Economic Policy Options for Covid-19 and Beyond in Central Asia”, developed under the project by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The overarching reason for preparing this comparative COVID-19 economic policy analysis was the outbreak and quick spread of the pandemic that is having a significant negative impact on the global economy. The Economist Intelligence Unit, an organization that provides forecasting and advisory services to assist entrepreneurs, financiers, and government officials, and as part of USAID’s Future Growth Initiative, developed this report to shed light on the economic impacts the global downturn is having in Central Asia and the policy options available to regional governments to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic situation and beyond.

The effectiveness and promise of interventions, gap analyses, good practices and recommendations will be the main focus of the upcoming economic policy roundtables to be hosted by USAID’s Future Growth Initiative and the EIU throughout Central Asia.


Export Guide for Central Asia Horticulture Exporters

Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan have been producing and trading a wide range of fruit and vegetables for centuries. However, growers in the region do not have enough information that simply explains the steps need to be followed to enter export markets and, thus, are not sufficiently integrated into the international horticulture supply chain. For these reasons, USAID’s Competitiveness, Trade, and Jobs activity (CTJ) partnered with international trade experts to develop the Export Guide. This document not only give insights on the export process, but also provides recommendations, analysis of current trends, information on markets to be targeted and events to be attended to increase chances of successful export operations. By addressing cross-border impediments to trade, USAID CTJ helps to develop a more diverse and competitive private sector in the region.


Directory Of Central Asian Horticulture exporters

This Directory has been developed by USAID’s Competitiveness, Trade and Jobs activity (CTJ) as an easily accessible catalogue to showcase Central Asian growers, processors and trading companies willing and ready to export their horticultural products to new markets outside the region. The Directory is intended for use by horticulture importers, distributors, retail buyers and international trade fair organizers.
