During Project Implementation


The objectives of the PPTA are to (i) assess the economic efficiency of grain production in Uzbekistan, and the need for, and feasibility of, specific project interventions that could be supported under a Bank loan; (ii) prepare a project suitable for Bank financing that will strengthen or, if required, establish support mechanisms to facilitate the efficient growth and development of grain productivity in a market-oriented economy; and (iii) reach a consensus and commitment among the concerned "stakeholders" -- the central, oblast (province) and raion (district) agencies, the farm communities, and any involved international agencies -- to implement and bear responsibility for the Project.
