OECD Central Asia Initiative
Launched in November 2008, the OECD Central Asia Initiative (CAI) aims to render the region more competitive and attractive to foreign investment. The Initiative covers seven countries: Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. OECD and partner countries help to define the CAI work priorities and to identify new policy areas for OECD intervention. The CAI is an integral part of the OECD Eurasia Competitiveness Programme and is co-chaired by the EU and Kyrgyzstan.
