Industry Trend Analysis - Transport To Grow From Low Base - MAR 2018

BMI View: The China-backed Belt and Road initiative will provide the main growth tailwind for Uzbekistan's transport segment in the coming years, with Chinese and multilateral investment set to energise a sector long characterised by underinvestment.

Investment from multi-lateral development institutions and Chinese companies will increasingly fill an investment gap in Uzbekistan's transport sector, stoking modest expansion over our forecast period. We expect growth to be fairly broad-based across the country's rail, road, and air segments, with each sector possessing a healthy project pipeline.
