EU - Central Asia Digital Connectivity

Team Europe Initiative


Transformational potential:

  • Promote digital connectivity and the development of the digital economy in Central Asia
  • Tackle the connectivity gap in the region by developing a high-capacity internet network, while increasing access to international bandwidth and establishing a secure connection between Europe and Central Asia
  • Mitigate the digital divide in the region and generate positive externalities for the wider economy

The Team Europe Proposal:

  1. Financing of a major fibre-optic cable, extending the EU-financed Black Sea cable
  2. Complementary to the infrastructure investments

The TEI covers the countries in central Asia: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
