abstract = "This report aims at identifying common causes, patterns, and effects of changing foreign investments across the countries of Central Asia. Experience of neighboring countries in Central Asia as a distinct region of the world attracting foreign investment is particularly relevant for each country in the area. Therefore, the comparative analysis of the Central Asian countries presented in this report for their first three decades after gaining independence is particularly relevant given the global shifts in 2020. Growth in direct foreign investments was fueled and attracted by extractive industries in entire Central Asia. The development has been highly volatile during the whole studied period. Foreign investments overall declined between 2009 and 2020. Substantial progress in liberalization, human capital, the rule of law, and democratization is needed for Central Asian countries to attract foreign investment beneficial for local populations in the long term.",
