Asian Development Bank and Kyrgyz Republic: Fact Sheet
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on the Kyrgyz Republic as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
The Kyrgyz Republic joined the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in 1994. The ADB country partnership strategy (CPS), 2013–2017 supports the objectives of the Kyrgyz Republic’s National Sustainable Development Strategy, 2013–2017. The overarching goal of both strategies is to reduce poverty through inclusive economic growth. The CPS aims to remove key constraints to growth and expand access to economic opportunities. By helping to reform legal and regulatory frameworks, ADB seeks to improve the Kyrgyz Republic’s business environment, while ensuring that affordable finance is available to all, the reliability of electricity services is improved, and people become more employable. Regional connectivity must be maintained and enhanced, just as gaps in infrastructure between regions need to be closed.
As of 31 December 2014, the Kyrgyz Republic has received 38 Asian Development Fund loans ($961.7 million) and 32 grants ($459.6 million), or a total of over $1.4 billion. ADB has also provided 88 technical assistance projects amounting to $50.5 million.
