Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program
The program is a proactive facilitator of practical, results-based regional projects, and policy initiatives critical to sustainable economic growth and shared prosperity in the region. It is guided by the overarching vision of “Good Neighbors, Good Partners, and Good Prospects.”
CAREC 2030 provides the new long-term strategic framework for the program and prioritizes five operational clusters, encompassing both traditional and new areas of cooperation: (i)Economic and Financial Stability; (ii) Trade, Tourism, and Economic Corridors; (iii) Infrastructure and Connectivity; (iv) Agriculture and Water; and (v) Human Development.
In addition, CAREC supports the integration of information and communication technology (ICT) across the spectrum of CAREC operations to promote productivity and efficiency gains in all operational clusters.
