UZBEKISTAN: ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST PROMISING FRONTIER MARKETS

Digital Export Delegation with Briefing and One-To-One Meetings Focused on Water Management and Related Sectors

This digital export delegation is by organized by the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) in cooperation with Nordstrom International with financial support from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs – The Trade Council and with support from Danish EKF and DNA Uzbekistan. 

Opportunities in Water Management and Related Sectors 

This digital export delegation will have a particular focus on opportunities in water and related industries in Uzbekistan. The 142 million EUR contract recently awarded to SUEZ to upgrade the water management system in Tashkent, Uzbekistan's capital, will serve as a case study for Danish companies to explore subcontracting as well as the wider opportunities in the country and represents a significant opportunity for Danish companies to provide world-class technologies.

Market Overview

Uzbekistan is one of the world's most promising economies. For the last four years, the Uzbek Government has embarked on an ambitious reform effort, which has included currency liberalization, financial sector reforms, and improvements in the ease of doing business. These steps have led to growth in both trade and foreign direct investment as multinational companies re-enter a market that had been effectively closed for a decade.

Uzbekistan occupies a strategic location at the heart of Central Asia and with a population of 30 million is the most populous country in a wider region that is home to over 70 million. Despite the COVID-19 downturn, the International Monetary Fund predicts that the Uzbek economy will continue to expand this year—at 1.8 % —before rebounding to 7 % growth in 2021. Uzbekistan was lauded as one the world's top twenty most improved economies for ease of doing business, according to the World Bank's Doing Business 2020 report. It was also named "country of the year” in 2019 by The Economist.

Uzbekistan has a diverse economy with a large agricultural and industrial sector. The country's key sectors have traditionally been state-owned enterprises. Enabled by financing from the country's large banking sector as well as international lenders such as the World Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Uzbek companies are seeking to modernize their operations in order to improve competitiveness of exports in the global market. This modernization drive represents a significant opportunity for Danish companies to provide world-class technologies.
