|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
Uzbekistan's trade competitiveness is impeded by high cost of transport. The underlying causes include the country's location being landlocked in the heart of Central Asia, deteriorating road infrastructure, and cumbersome logistics processes. These constraints combine to place Uzbekistan at rank 99 of the 2018 Logistics Performance Index out of 160 ranked countries. The Logistics Performance Index comprises several indicators. The low ranking for international shipments (rank 120) is attributable mainly to Uzbekistan's landlocked location and logistics facilities and processes, rather than infrastructure. In fact, Uzbekistan has improved its ranking for quality of infrastructure from rank 99 in 2016 to currently rank 77. There are indications, however, that this trend is reversing.
Strong economic growth and a concomitant surge in traffic have revealed the need to improve and expand the road network. Uzbekistan needs a prioritized road investment program along with a realistic financing plan. While a resource envelop has yet to be determined, government funds and financing from development partners will unlikely match future financing needs. The Government will therefore explore the potential of private sector involvement in road financing. To this end, public-private partnerships (PPP) will be introduced. Road projects that meet PPP standards will be identified as part of the overall road investment and financing program.
(i) Long-term prosperity driven by increased trade competitiveness resulting from the development of viable and environmentally and socially sustainable transport structure and services realized
(ii) Public health promoted through safer roads and traffic conditions.
