Ambassador Javlon Vakhabov provided an overview of Uzbekistan’s transition away from isolation, its program of reform, and its important economic potential and addressed questions from participants. Before and after the program, CLDP met with private sector participants to discuss their specific interests in Uzbekistan, including areas of optimism and of concern for needed additional reform.
