Asian Development Bank and Uzbekistan: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2009
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Uzbekistan as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Landlocked Uzbekistan is the most populous of the Central Asian republics with agriculture the mainstay of the economy and contributing about a third of gross domestic product (GDP). The country is also one of the world’s biggest suppliers of cotton, and produces oil and gas, gold, copper, some industrial products, and processed food. As the economy shifts from central planning to a market-based system, progress in macroeconomic, structural, and institutional reforms has been significant, especially for policies that support private sector development over the last years. Further liberalization of the financial sector, domestic and international trade, improvements in the business environment and industrial diversification will help sustain growth and bring widespread improvements in living standards.
