Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is positioned on the ancient Silk Road between Europe and Asia. It is a landlocked country and bordered by: Kazakhstan and the Aral Sea to the north; Tajikistan to the southeast; Kyrgyzstan to the northeast; Afghanistan to the south; and Turkmenistan to the southwest. It is a unitary, constitutional, presidential republic. The Republic of Uzbekistan consists of 12 provinces, 1 autonomous republic (Karakalpakstan) and the capital city, Tashkent. Uzbekistan’s legal market is heavily weighted towards oil and gas and natural resources, with government-backed infrastructure projects also being a significant source of mandates.
