About Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is located in the heart of Central Asia, between two large rivers Amu Darya and Syr Darya. History of nations, living on this territory, is more than thousand years. As of 2022, Uzbekistan has the largest population out of all the countries in Central Asia. Its 36 million citizens comprise nearly half the region's total population. The Government of Uzbekistan has developed an ambitious set of reforms in recent years, but more are needed to continue to spur private sector-led growth and job creation. Notably, reducing the dominance of state-owned enterprises and opening up key sectors of the economy to competition would strengthen market incentives and sustainability. Uzbekistan’s GDP grew by 5.7 percent in 2022, led by strong remittances, consumption, and exports. Non-gold exports grew by 21 percent in 2022 (in US$ value), led by textiles, non-ferrous metals, fertilizers, and food. The fiscal deficit declined from 6.1 percent of GDP in 2021 to 4.2 percent in 2022, supported by higher revenues. By end-2022, international reserves increased slightly to reach US$35.8 billion, or 14 months of import cover.
