About this book

The Central Asian republics - Kazakhstan, the Krygyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan - are transitioning from centrally planned economies to market -oriented systems. This volume addresses the process and policy reforms these countries face and how the reforms may impact agricultural development in a region that has experienced varying degrees of economic growth over the fifteen years since independence. It will offer expert policy research and analysis and will provide research-based information for generating policy recommendations that are relevant to each country. It will also compare similar evidences from other transitional economies such as China, Vietnam, and selected Eastern European countries.
