The Central Asia-Caucasus Institute presents this Spring’s team of Rumsfeld Fellows, emerging leaders from the Caucasus, Afghanistan, Mongolia, and Central Asia – which the alumni themselves have dubbed the ‘CAMCA Region.’
The region is facing critical questions: are the CAMCA countries globally competitive for investors? What is being done to remove the impediments?
At this Forum Rumsfeld Fellows will introduce an idea of the Investment Harbor, as a mechanism to facilitate investments, trade and greater regional and global connectivity of the CAMCA countries.
