Kyrgyz Republic and ADB
In the Spotlight
Low global commodity prices, recession in the Russian Federation, and a slowdown in demand from major trading partners—especially the People’s Republic of China: times are tough across Central Asia.
ADB and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic have signed the loan agreement for the third and final phase of support to rehabilitate the Toktogul hydropower plant and increase the reliability of the national and regional power systems.
ADB and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic today signed the financing agreement amounting to $95.1 million to rehabilitate a section of the North-South Alternate Road Corridor in the Kyrgyz Republic.
ADB has been among the top development partners of the Kyrgyz Republic, playing a key role in road transport, education, the finance sector, and agriculture and rural development.
In recent years, the Kyrgyz Republic has maintained a strong development agenda to reduce poverty through inclusive economic growth.
With the support of ADB, the government has sought to reform legal and regulatory frameworks, improve the country’s business environment, make affordable finance available to all, improve the reliability of electricity services, and allow the people to become more employable.
The ADB country partnership strategy (CPS), 2013-2017 supports the objectives of the Kyrgyz Republic’s National Sustainable Development Strategy, 2013-2017, aiming to remove key constraints to growth and expand access to economic opportunities.
The Kyrgyz Republic is a member of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program.
