Description

Uzbekistan is a key transit country in Central Asia for trade among themselves, as well as with the rest of Asia and Europe. Transport plays a key role in promoting regional and domestic trade. This project reconstructs the Uzbekistan section of CAREC Corridor 2, which connects Uzbekistan to Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan. This reconstruction will improve connectivity, road safety, and boost domestic and international trade.
