Government-Private Sector Relations for Sustainable Development in Central Asia
The article deals with the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Central Asia, including the roles of public and private sector, the opportunities stemming from public-private relations and the expected sustainable development outcomes. Some common SDGs outcomes can be observed across Central Asia, such as the eradication of poverty and the reduction of inequalities. However, results of SDGs implementation in the region are varied. In order to stimulate cross-learning and to address regional SDG challenges, it is recommended to establish a permanent Central Asian regional platform for SDGs implementation. At regional and domestic level, governments can play a decisive role to support SDGs implementation and stimulate sustainable development. Governments can produce enabling regulations, effectively co-operate with the private sector and facilitate access to quality finance.
