Uzbekistan Country Profile

Uzbekistan plays a pivotal role in developing an independent, stable, prosperous and democratic Central Asia that helps ensure regional and global security. As Central Asia’s most populous country, with extensive natural resources and transportation links, Uzbekistan is a potential force for regional economic growth and stability.

USAID helps Uzbekistan diversify its economy and increase regional trade, address serious health threats and encourage the government to be more responsive to its people’s needs. As part of the USAID Mission to Central Asia, USAID in Uzbekistan advances the U.S. Government’s New Silk Road initiative, which increases regional connections among the economies and peoples of Central and South Asia — including Afghanistan — to foster greater regional stability and prosperity
