The CAMCA (Central Asia-Mongolia-Caucasus-Afghanistan) Regional Forum is a non-political and non-partisan Forum established to promote region-wide discussions on means of advancing economic growth and development in Greater Central Asia (Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). It promotes this goal by fostering dialogue and interaction among rising young leaders from all sectors in the 10 countries of the region, as well as with international leaders and stakeholders. The Forum organizers believe that expanded communication and collaboration among talented professionals from a range of fields can significantly contribute to economic, political and social development on both a national and regional basis.

While traditionally held in the CAMCA region, due to the ongoing complexities with the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 Forum will take place in Washington, D.C., providing a special opportunity to forge productive partnerships within the major global hub that is the United States’ capital. Held amidst the backdrop of the center of U.S. government and policy, this year's Forum offers a unique, and non-political and non-partisan, occasion for regional participants to foster cooperation with their neighbors as well as gain recognition and advance linkages with U.S. actors.
