29.09.16 – “New Technologies and Renewable Energy in Central Asia: Opportunities for Growth” – Occasional Paper Online Now

Central Asia is today an area rich in growth potential and investment opportunities.  The five states have different priorities and are moving at different rates, but all are steadily working toward the removal of barriers to innovation, trade and investment, and are now looking to new technologies and foreign investment to help maintain continued and sustainable growth.

The Eurasian Council on Foreign Affairs, a multinational forum for discussion of Central Asia’s relationship with European countries, is pleased to announce the publication of “New Technologies and Renewable Energy in Central Asia: Opportunities for Growth”, which presents a thoroughly researched snapshot of three important sectors in which innovation is flourishing and which are seeking international partners, financial assistance, and foreign direct investment.

Key sectors for development and growth are:  agriculture, digital communications, and alternative energy.  With its “Future Energy” theme, the upcoming EXPO 2017 fair in Astana presents a unique and timely opportunity to attract and connect international investors with Central Asian partners, especially those with shared interests in developing alternative energy sources.
