AUSTRIA CONNECT Central Asia 2022

  • Tashkent

AUSTRIA CONNECT goes Uzbekistan! For the first time ever, the flagship event of ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA and networking conference for Austrian managers, investors and entrepreneurs will take place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.


From June 1 to 3, company representatives from Austria, branch managers of Austrian companies and expats will discuss current economic topics and business development issues with leading industry experts from Uzbekistan. This is a unique chance to get first-hand information about the business opportunities in Uzbekistan and Central Asia.

The theme for this year’s conference will be: ‘Rising Star Uzbekistan: New Opportunities along the Silk Road’. Uzbekistan has become a main regional driving force by initiating significant transformations in recent years: changing foreign policy priorities, liberalizing economy, reforming state administration and developing its labor market. All these political and economic initiatives as well as the increasing complexity of the world market require Austrian companies to rethink their strategy and long-term goals in Central Asia.

Join exciting expert lectures, take part in workshops and networking events, and get detailed market insight and information about latest economic developments. Use the opportunity to meet key decision-makers, professionals from research and science as well as official representatives. Share your experiences and get tips and tricks on how to succeed in the Central Asian markets.
