In February, the Trump administration launched its Central Asia Strategy to drive the United States' engagement in the countries of Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Central Asia has always been the strategic and commercial crossroad of civilizations between Europe and Asia. The United States’ primary strategic interest in this region is to build a more stable and prosperous Central Asia that is sovereign, secure and connected to global markets.
To implement this new vision, Acting Administrator John Barsa of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) will announce a significant shift of USAID's presence in Central Asia that will help deepen the United States’ commitment to, and strategic partnership with, the countries and in the region more broadly.
