Kyrgyz Republic: Development Effectiveness Brief

Publication | March 2013

This development effectiveness brief presents how ADB's operations in the Kyrgyz Republic help improve people's lives in the country and the challenges ADB and the country face in pursuing agreed development goals.

Following its independence, the country led the region in market reforms and was the first country in the Commonwealth of Independent States to be accepted into the World Trade Organization. The government is pursuing a medium-term economic development strategy, and aims to make steady progress in fiscal consolidation and improving debt management. The key to further progress in the country includes recovering from the internal and external shocks of recent years while addressing persistent governance issues and attracting greater private sector investment.

The Kyrgyz Republic has a promising future. Located at the doorstep of the most economically powerful region in the world, and serving as the crossroads between Europe and Asia, it stands to benefit greatly if managed properly.


The development effectiveness brief series describes how ADB's operations help improve People's lives in its member countries. The series also outlines the challenges ADB and its member countries face in pursuing agreed development goals.
