Central Asia has changed dramatically over the past few years. Experts note the prerequisites for closer cooperation between countries, primarily on economic issues. Uzbekistan, having experienced a change of leader, is becoming the locomotive of the region along with Kazakhstan, pursuing an open foreign policy and increasing investment attraction in the region. What is the future for Central Asia? Can countries jointly solve regional problems? What will happen to the region’s economy? Will countries be able to respond to future challenges?
These and other issues are discussed by political scientists and economists at the regular meeting of Expert Update, which is organized by Internet Magazine Vlast and Verny Capital group of companies.
