At the conclusion of a May exploratory visit to the central Asian nation, Dr. Leipziger left behind a blueprint for establishing a national economic council and an international advisory group, resulting in a presidential decree to establish both. Dr. Leipziger will return to Uzbekistan this month to help establish the international advisory group, which he will chair as the lead adviser to the prime minister.
