For Private Sector
June 2013 – Workshop on “Tools and methods for analyzing Business Climate and Business Environment Indices of Uzbekistan” for specialists of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Uzbekistan.
Private sector is one of the core drivers of the economy and has the power to accelerate growth of employment and improvement of living standards. In fact, the Government of Uzbekistan emphasizes private sector development as a priority reform area. CER being significant player in this process has the ability to serve as a bridge between the Government and private sector and work towards achieving consensus on development perspectives.
Currently, CER is well-positioned to improve such communication, ensure that the interests and priorities of the private sector are reflected in respective policy decisions, and broaden the role of the private sector in policy formulation process.
Apart from its role as an advocate and a facilitator, CER being a credible source of independent expertise offers a wide array of services to the private sector, including sectoral studies, impact assessments, development strategies, market reviews, business-oriented publications and training programs.
CER is open for cooperation with the private sector and welcomes any suggestions on how to make this cooperation more effective and maximize mutual benefits.

The decisive factor in the structural transformation of the economy is a build-up of capacity for the production of technologically sophisticated, high- value- added products. The results of the analysis of the target parameters of sector programs based on the “Product Space” demonstrated the high practical value of this methodology. The application of this method to develop sectoral pro-grams can be expected to help identify the promising paths of structural transformation and thereby optimize indus-trial policy to make the Uzbekistan economy more competitive.
