Prior to Uzbekistan's independence, the country's railway system was the largest part of the former Soviet Union's (FSU's) Central Asian railways. The system traced the ancient trade route linking Asia and Europe and the Persian Gulf with Central Asia and provided a strategic corridor for the transportation of passengers and goods within the Central Asian region and between Central Asia and other states that were part of the FSU. The main goal of the Project was to facilitate pro-poor economic growth through technical and institutional measures to improve the operational efficiency of railway transport.
