The main objective of this assignment is to conduct a rapid-analysis of trade related impacts from COVID-19 in Uzbekistan. In particular, analysis is needed of the impact of COVID-19 on Uzbekistan exporters.
Key areas include:
• Impacts of the disruption of export value-chains through closure/restriction of transport routes (both for exports of goods and for services such as tourism). This should include a series of recommendations addressing the disruption of export value-chains.
• Loss of export orders from buyers in export markets (e.g. garments orders from European or North American buyers).
