Political risks in Uzbekistan remain on a high level despite of political reforms.
Although Uzbekistan has been carrying out a successful reform process, political risks remain on a high level, in particular in regards to long-term projects with high investments. This is due to the fact that the open door policy under president Mirsijojew has not yet led to sufficient legal and institutional reforms. As a consequence thereof, legal certainty and the guarantee of property rights are still on a low level. However, in regards to short- and mid-term business projects, there is definitely a window of opportunity.
