Description The objective of the Program is to promote sound and more balanced development of the financial sector to enable it to effectively mobilize savings and provide alternative sources of funding for productive investment and employment generation. In particular, the Program will (i) facilitate the enforcement of banking legislation and regulation, close banking sector regulatory gaps, and promote competition; (ii) strengthen supervision of securities markets to improve market transparency, and protect investors; and (iii) remove policy distortions that undermine the development of capital markets. To achieve these objectives, the Program will seek to (i) increase the transparency and consistency of enforcement policies and procedures in the area of banking, (ii) strengthen risk management regulation and cross-border supervision, (iii) facilitate coordination and cooperation between supervisory bodies, (iv) consolidate the institutional framework for regulation and supervision of NBFIs, (v) strengthen the legal and regulatory basis for securities markets, (vi) strengthen the governance of market intermediaries, (vii) rationalize the tax treatment of government and corporate securities, and (viii) strengthen privatization policies.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Recognizing the role of the financial sector in promoting growth and poverty reduction, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has supported the development of the financial sector through a number of loans and TAs. The Financial Intermediation and Resource Mobilization Program helped to (i) establish an overall enabling policy, legal, and regulatory environment for the banking sector; and (ii) resolve a number of problem banks. The Second Phase of the Corporate Governance and Enterprise Reform Program addressed, among other things, (i) corporate governance and disclosure, and (ii) judicial reforms. ADB's Country Strategy and Program for the Kyrgyz Republic for 2004-06 aims to support private sector led growth through financial sector development.
