In September 2023, the authorities adopted the National Development Strategy of Uzbekistan (NDS) until 2030. The document outlines the country’s primary development objectives and pivotal reforms across various sectors to be realized by the end of this decade.
This marks the third NDS that has been adopted by the government since 2017, with the preceding two covering the periods of 2017-2021 and 2022-2026 (the latter is being implemented). The World Bank has actively supported the government in executing these strategies.
The NDS until 2030 encapsulates various aspirations of Uzbekistan, including plans to ascend to the ranks of upper-middle-income countries through sustainable economic development, create education, healthcare, and social protection systems that align with international standards, and establish a conducive environmental framework for the well-being of its citizens.
The new strategy outlines a set of 100 priority actions that the government will take to advance progress across five key areas. These areas encompass fostering opportunities for individual self-fulfillment, ensuring the welfare of the population through sustainable economic growth, conserving water resources, protecting the environment, and crafting a public administration system that will focus on citizens’ needs.
The implementation of the NDS has been designated as a key goal for all state agencies. The World Bank remains committed to its collaboration with the government to assist Uzbekistan in realizing its central development objectives by 2030.
