CAREC Integrated Trade Agenda 2030 and Rolling Strategic Action Plan 2018–2020

Institutional Document | February 2019

This publication discusses how the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation Program (CAREC) can enhance trade by addressing key challenges, including poor market access, limited economic diversification, and weak institutions for trade.

CAREC’s new trade strategy leverages on the successes of past CAREC trade work built on mutual trust and collective efforts. It is designed to foster deepened regional cooperation and integration. The CAREC Program is a partnership of 11 countries—Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Pakistan, the People's Republic of China, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan—to promote development and lead to accelerated growth and poverty reduction.
