Asian Development Bank and the Kyrgyz Republic: Fact Sheet

ADB operations in the Kyrgyz Republic focus on energy, transport, education, public sector management, water supply and sanitation, and agriculture.

The Kyrgyz Republic joined ADB in 1994 and the bank has since approved 44 loans ($1.2 billion) and 40 grants ($662 million) from the Asian Development Fund (ADF) as well as 6 grants ($7.5 million) from Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction. ADB has also financed 104 technical assistance projects ($60.2 million).

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 help Kyrgyz Republic citizens become more employable.

In September 2018, the ADB Board of Directors endorsed the country partnership strategy (CPS), 2018–2022 for the Kyrgyz Republic to foster sustainable economic growth, leverage regional cooperation to profit from access to larger markets, and improve the quality of life for the Kyrgyz people.

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.
