Our project is with ANZDEC of New Zealand and UBI Consulting for the Asian Development Bank (TA No. 4217-UZB). In 2000-01 Bastin helped design a $40 million loan project for the grains industry focused on wheat productivity improvement. His current work in 2006 is a Technical Assistance project to continue the furthering of reforms in the sector with a special focus on farm machinery and seeds. From a base in Tashkent the TA works in three focus areas up-country. The work program runs to December 2006. Bastin is the Team Leader managing a group of international and local specialists.
