Greater infrastructure development could give remote, landlocked Central Asian economies a critical boost by enhancing pandemic recovery, poverty eradication, and climate change mitigation. However, growing constraints on the use of public funds will require new financing sources to tackle the region’s substantial infrastructure investment gap. In this podcast, ADBI research fellow Dina Azhgaliyeva and Waseda University professor Naoyuki Yoshino examine the unique challenges of Central Asian infrastructure development and ways to attract greater private financing in the region moving forward. The discussion draws upon the new ADBI press book, Developing Infrastructure in Central Asia: Impacts and Financing Mechanisms.
