This book brings together a series of background papers that were prepared for the First Eurasian Emerging Markets Forum, held in Thun, Switzerland, in January 2010. The papers cover a broad range of issues relevant to the diverse and dynamic group of countries situated on the Eurasian super-continent. Although the papers cover subjects and themes as diverse at the impact of the global economic crisis of 2008-2009 for the countries in the region, to what constitutes a good business environment – to name a few – they are united by the identification of the key issues – economic, geo-political, social – that are of the highest priority to the development of the countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus.
