Uzbekistan’s capital investments on the rise, industrial output growth lagging behind

If today’s investments represent tomorrow’s industrial output growth, in Kazakhstan tomorrow is always a day away, data presented by the Moscow-based Interstate Statistics Committee of the Commonwealth of Independent States, which unites all former Soviet republics except for Georgia and the three Baltic states.

While Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan industrial output increase is at pace with, or at moments even ahead of investment growth, in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan they have been at odds for a number of years now. What deteriorates the discrepancies is the fact that figures are reported in local currencies, which in both latter countries keep depreciating against hard currencies, which is not the case in the two former ones.

So far this year, the most poverty-stricken republics in Central Asia, if one excludes Turkmenistan which fails to report comprehensively, namely Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, lead in industrial growth in the first seven months of this year, with 19.5 and 13.1 per cent year-on-year respectively, followed by Uzbekistan with 6.8%. This leaves Russia and Kazakhstan far behind with 2.6 and 2.7 per cent on-year respectively.

In terms of industrial production costs, Uzbekistan leads with a 10 per cent on-year increase, followed by Kyrgyzstan with 5.8% and Kazakhstan with 3.2%, while in Tajikistan they went down by 1.6% and in the Russian Federation by 2% on-year.

On the other side of the spectrum, the equivalent of around 21.4 billion US dollar in capital investments have been injected into the four republics of Central Asia within the first half of the current year according to momentary exchange rates, the CISISC reports. Kazakhstan, thanks to its proven oil and gas reserves, leads with 5.25 trillion tenge (up 11.7% on-year) or in the order of $11 billion at current change rates – meaning about flat year-on-year.

A similar amount in greenbacks falls on Uzbekistan (just below 85.8 trillion soum, up 58.9% on-year, or around 25% in hard currency), leaving Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, both of which keep exchange rates stable, far behind with around $700 million each. For Kyrgyzstan, this means an on-year increase of 5.5 per cent, while Tajikistan posts an on-year decline of 8.6 per cent – the likely forebode of an imminent slowdown, if not a net decrease in industrial output. For all former Soviet republics, the warning sign is to make capital investments more effective in terms of production and employment yield, avoiding failures and where they occur take care of investment redirection.
