Central Asia remains relatively underrepresented compared to other sub-regions of Asia. Central Asia consists of five culturally and ethnically diverse countries that have followed different paths to political and economic transformation since achieving independence from the Soviet Union USSR. Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan have in relative terms made strides in market reforms, while Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan have not yet completed their transitions to market economies. Tajikistan represents an intermediate case. Given these regional realities, Central Asia is part of several struggles that intermittently see external actors compete for attention, power control and ultimately for access to land and resources . Furthermore, the transition period to market economies in all these countries brought unique fusion of political, economic, and social transformation.
