Since the first Environmental Performance Review (EPR) in 2001, Uzbekistan has moved through significant periods of economic development, liberalization and privatization. The result in overall growth has been impressive: since 2002, gross domestic product (GDP) has grown from a rate of 4 per cent to a consistent rate of 7 per cent from 2005 to the present. Government policies have supported macroeconomic stability, encouraged economic growth, improved the business environment and facilitated private sector development. Although the world economic recession has not had a great impact on Uzbekistan, at the end of 2008 the Government decided to introduce a large-scale anti-crisis package targeted at export promotion, greater demand for domestically produced goods, higher energy efficiency and the further development of small and medium-sized enterprises.
