    • The Year of Strengthening Connectivity
      The ECO proclaimed 2022 as the Year of Strengthening Connectivity

      The Member States of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO), have unanimously proclaimed the year of 2022 as the “Year of Strengthening Connectivity” to highlight the crucial role of transport and connectivity and stress their strong will and courage to enhance the regional economic integration through facilitating regional and international transit transport.

      The theme of “Strengthening Connectivity”, adopted by the Council of Ministers of the ECO, aims to promote well-developed transport infrastructure, safe, smooth and unhindered cross border transit, digitalized procedures, well-managed integrated road, rail, maritime, air and communication networks and enhanced international interaction for a well-developed Region.

      The noble theme of naming 2022 as the “Year of Strengthening Connectivity” in the ECO region was initially proposed by H.E Shavkat Mirziyoyev, honorable President of the Republic of Uzbekistan during the 15th ECO Summit held in Ashgabat on November 28, 2021 as the incumbent Chair of the Organization. Pursuant to the above mentioned proposal, the Council of Foreign Ministers of ECO, endorsed the theme and decided to proclaim the Year 2022 as the "Year of Strengthening Connectivity" with the aim of deepening partnership to achieve the mutual goals of making ECO Region a more connected, integrated, competitive and prosperous Region.

    • ECO Region and Global Agenda
      The ECO intergovernmental machinery and institutional arrangements, as one of the most prominent regional economic groups in the world, are vividly interacting with the emerging and trending global issues, particularly the UN-sponsored global agendas. It was the case from the 1960s, when ECO’s predecessor - RCD - began to exist close to the “development paradigm” of the day, and continues to be the case in the post-2015 development agenda. The ECO Member States, individually and collectively as a region, are involved in policymaking as well as operational frameworks to react to the challenges/opportunities exposed by the global issues of regional and national impacts. These include, among others, climatic changes, natural hazards, and sectors and themes addressed by the SDGs.
