We are collaborating with five Central Asian countries to develop their respective tourism industries, a forward step that will ultimately contribute to their economic development and growth.
This cooperation is part of USAID’s Competitive Trade and Jobs (CTJ) Activity in Central Asia project. PMCG, as part of a consortium led by DAI, has been working with the selected countries, assessing the tourism sector in each of them, and assisting to develop a regional tourism development action plan.
Tourism is listed as the third priority sector alongside horticulture and transport and logistics under this project, which covers Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
Numerous meetings and discussions have been held with representatives of national governments, companies operating in the tourism sector and tourism associations and the donor community, from the five countries.
Following productive collaboration, the project team has developed five strategic development objectives for each country, aimed at enhancing national tourism industries and boosting cooperation between the countries. Activity plans were also proposed in the pursuit of each of these development objectives.
