An international connectivity summit called “Central and South Asia: Regional Connectivity”. As an initiative of the President of Uzbekistan, a dual landlocked country, “Challenges and Opportunities” will be held in Tashkent from July 15th to 16th.
The summit will gather leaders from South and Central Asia, aiming to strengthen the ties between the two regions. The summit will discuss three common themes-economy, security, and culture. It aims to refresh the historical connection between Central Asia and South Asia. The President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev invited the leaders of the four Central Asian countries as well as the prime ministers of India and Pakistan. Major representatives of Russia, Iran, China, the United States and the European Union will also be invited to attend the summit.
Expanding the links between South Asian and Central Asian markets is a dialogue that lasts for decades. Tashkent has always been eager to be regarded as a regional participant and hopes to use this meeting as a launch pad for deeper contacts between Central and South Asia. One of the main goals of the summit is to lay a solid foundation for closer interaction between Central Asia and South Asia, and to identify specific projects of a strategic nature.
As the region is discussing several major transportation infrastructure projects, it is more important than ever for all countries to agree on their mutually beneficial nature and not leave any country behind. There are some geopolitical difficulties that need to be discussed and overcome.
