You are invited to a unique discussion with all six Central Asian Ambassadors on the "new trade and investment norm" between the United States and Central Asia.

Have Central Asian states considered joining the recently announced Economic Prosperity Network?

  • Has the pandemic changed the commercial and investment needs of Central Asian states?
  • What challenges should American and Canadian companies be prepared to address in order to secure a contract or negotiate an investment agreement?
  • What preferences and concessions can Central Asian states offer to foreign firms to convince them to do business with and in the region?
  • Is there a "go-to-place" for foreign companies to access and identify local procurement needs? Is there a centralized procurement database?
  • What are the priority areas for Central Asian states to help American and Canadian companies create jobs within the countries and in the region?

These and other burning questions by the business community will be addressed during the virtual discussion.
