A June 11 meeting in Washington focused on ways to further improve trade and investment between the United States and Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan. The ninth such gathering under the U.S.-Central Asia Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (to which Afghanistan is still an observer) included discussions on World Trade Organization membership (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan are not yet members), customs, investment, standards and sanitary measures, and procurement. The session was preceded June 10 by discussions within TIFA working groups on customs coordination, standards and sanitary measures, women’s economic empowerment, and increasing bilateral trade and investment flows in 2014 and 2015.
