PUBLICATION

Promoting Regional Tourism Cooperation under CAREC 2030

This study seeks to assess the potential of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program as a platform to promote a regional approach to tourism development.

Economic Forecast

Acceleration across sectors and a rebound in remittances boosted growth in 2019. Higher domestic demand lifted inflation, but the current account deficit narrowed slightly. Lower public investment, along with weak remittances and foreign direct investment resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, are projected to slow growth in 2020 and again in 2021, with inflation remaining in single digits. The current account deficit will be little changed as rising electricity exports offset low remittances. Reforming tax policy is important to spur investment.
