Posted by Reading Time: 2 minutes

Tuesday, July 6, 2021

This week’s Belt and Road Investor Intelligence continues with the spotlight on Central Asia as we examine three more Central Asian countries and their growing influential role in regional and Eurasian trade.

Of special note is Uzbekistan, whose trade and investment relations with the EU and UK are rapidly developing.

Kyrgyzstan, meanwhile, has emerged as an added value regional supply chain we tell you why.

Finally, Kazakhstan represents a major trans-Eurasian route and we look at upcoming infrastructure builds that will enhance this position. The International North-South Transportation Corridor (INSTC) is very much part of all this, and we journey from India to Russia to see what impact this will, and is about to have, on multi-modal alternatives to the Suez Canal.
