Asian Development Bank and Uzbekistan: Fact Sheet

ADB support to Uzbekistan is aligned with the country’s national development priorities, which guides its pursuit of industrial modernization and infrastructure development.

Since the country joined ADB in 1995, Uzbekistan has received 69 loans totaling $6.8 billion, including two private sector loans totaling $225 million, and $81.93 million in technical assistance grants.

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2018–2020 for Uzbekistan fully supports the country’s national development strategy and reflects its updated development priorities. With a project pipeline of $2.9 billion, the COBP has a focus on transport, communication, energy, water supply, municipal infrastructure and services, health, and access to finance.

In the medium term, ADB will support the economic expansion of Uzbekistan through industrial development and agricultural diversification, underpinning the longer-term objective of creating jobs and improving the livelihoods of rural residents. In addition to public sector assistance, ADB will explore direct investments in the private sector and public-private partnership opportunities.
