Please join our Central Asian Ambassadors panel to learn more about their governments' efforts to become an integral part of the Global Supply Chain. With the rising demand for diversification of the global supply chain, Central Asia is well-positioned to scale-up production unique to the world market. Top diplomatic envoys will review present challenges and opportunities of integrating the region into the global value chain and how their respective governments respond to calls for attracting international expertise and clientele.  

The discussion's unique format will also provide a rare opportunity to learn first-hand about the latest developments and plans for regional economic cooperation. The American business community will be able to get an insight into how their products, manufacturing, and activities can be integrated and aligned with the Central Asia - United States cooperation agenda. Our speakers - Christopher Wilson, Assistant USTR for South and Central Asia, and Zeba Reyazuddin, Deputy Assistant USTR for South and Central Asia - will update the audience on the USTR TIFA-led engagement with the Central Asian trade policy-makers.
