16/05/17 – Uzbeks Win $23bln Investment

President Mirziyoyev has returned from China with multiple agreements totalling $23bln. This investment covers a wide range of sectors including infrastructure, energy, agriculture, chemicals and communication. These large agreements have come as a result of Uzbekistan actively looking for foreign investment after the death of Karimov, and China’s increasing determination and investment in its “one belt, one road” initiative. We are likely to see more Chinese investment in Uzbekistan as China is seen as a more beneficial partner than the US or Russia, as China’s interest in Uzbekistan is primarily economic, rather than for political or security reasons.
