The COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis have underlined the need for many countries to tackle new economic realities. As Uzbekistan, like many other economies, emerges from the pandemic, policymakers and the private sector must move decisively to expand Uzbekistan’s economic potential and create the conditions for long-term growth and prosperity. Building a more prosperous future will require actions from both sides by securing an open and efficient public-private dialogue for sustained economic recovery.

The Economic Intelligence Unit released a comparative study, “Looking Ahead: Economic Policy Options for Covid-19 and Beyond in Central Asia”, as part of USAID’s economic response plan to the pandemic. The report provides an overview of the global pandemic’s impact on the economies of 15 countries and includes a detailed analysis of governments’ responses in leading global markets such as the United States, Canada, South Korea, Japan, and India. It also compares these with countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Poland, Ukraine, Georgia, and Central Asian countries. The report tries to present a set of economic measures for long-term recovery and best international practices for sectors such as tourism, light manufacturing, and food processing, among others.
