Potential and Prospects
Central Asia at the Heart of Commerce and Industry

Klaus Mangold

Deutsche Fassung


Trade between Germany and Central Asia has increased in recent years. The region is attractive to German commerce and industry as a source of raw materials and as a growing market for German goods. Kazakhstan is Germany’s main trading partner in Central Asia. In order to tap this potential for economic co-operation, political stability, investment security, transparency and rule of law are needed in the region.
