Insights from transition economies: China, Poland and Uzbekistan

You are invited to join us for an evening discussion bringing together experts to explore different approaches to economic development across three transition economies. While reforms are expected to yield efficiencies in resource allocation and foster private sector participation in the economy, they pose a series of challenging questions to decision makers, determining the pace and effectiveness of the reform agenda. Our speakers will explore issues such as how to expand social protection to low-income households to cushion the adverse impact of inflation, triggered by structural reforms. How to ensure stable and inclusive growth, while reforming state-owned enterprises? Also, we will explore the costs and benefits of the rise of state-owned banks.

Our speakers for the evening

  • Begzod Djalilov, Asian Development Bank
  • Professor Tomasz Mickiewicz, Aston University 
  • Professor Markus Taube, University of Duisburg Essen

This event will take place in the Regent Street Cinema, which was restored and re-opened by the University of Westminster in May 2015, reinstating one of the most historic cinemas in Britain to its former grandeur.

Jointly organised by the Westminster Development Policy Network and Westminster International University in Tashkent.
