The Uzbekistan Public Expenditure Review (PER) takes stock of fiscal developments and institutions, and analyzes the key issues that impact the composition, challenges, and effectiveness of government spending and the stance of fiscal policy.

Understanding these issues is essential, as new fiscal pressures are emerging in the process of economic transformation and as citizens demand higher quality of education and other public services.

The fiscal reform agenda remains extensive, but provides an opportunity to strengthen the effectiveness of government and boost inclusive economic growth.

In the process of ongoing economic transformation, the government faces several challenges in fiscal policy, for which this PER has developed policy options as discussed in detail in the chapters.
