Central Asia has a centuries-old tradition of bringing Europe and Asia together. Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan have renewed this role for the region since attaining independence. EU-Central Asia relations have developed significantly over recent years, as illustrated by the new-generation Enhanced Partnership and Cooperation Agreements signed with Kazakhstan and under negotiation with Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
