Republic of Uzbekistan

PVS Shipping Line

Economic Overview

Export of hydrocarbons and primarily natural gas, provides a significant share of foreign exchange earnings.  Other major export earners include gold and cotton, with the economy still significantly reliant on the latter.

Uzbekistan’s growth has been mainly driven by state-led investments and a favourable export environment.  The government has actively courted a number of major US and international corporations, offering both financial and tax advantages.

Diminishing foreign investment and difficulties transporting goods across borders remain issues for the government.
