Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

In the framework of the second Tashkent International Investment Forum held in the capital on April 28, an agreement was signed between the State Assets Management Agency and the International Finance Corporation to assist the government in the privatization of Navoiazot JSC.
According to the agreement, the IFC will serve as a strategic advisor in the pre-privatization preparation process of Navoiazot JSC, one of the leading chemical and fertilizer companies in Uzbekistan and Central Asia.
The need to carry out pre-privatization preparation of Navoiazot JSC was established by the Decree of the President of Uzbekistan No. 388 dated October 10, 2022. The pre-privatization preparation will help the country's government develop an optimal strategy for privatizing one of its largest state assets. The subsequent privatization of Navoiazot JSC will facilitate the inflow of private investments into Uzbekistan's chemical industry, its modernization, and the growth of efficiency and competitiveness in this fundamental sector of the country's economy.
