A wave of positive changes has emerged in Central Asia in recent years, most vividly demonstrated in growing regional cooperation among Central Asian states. The region’s commitment to transformation and modernization is attracting regional and global attention. Infrastructure development on both Eastern and Western shores of the Caspian, as well as positive trends in the settlement of the status of Caspian Sea, are opening greater opportunities for broader regional trade and economic integration of the region. Our speakers will discuss these newly emerging trends and opportunities.
