To increase energy efficiency in industrial sectors and reduce GHG emissions via collaboration with the financial sector.
Good corporate governance is important both for companies to achieve stable development and for countries in general striving to foster investment in the private sector. Companies in Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan need to substantially improve corporate governance to win shareholders’ confidence, reduce the risk of financial crises, and ease access to capital.
The Project is working in the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan on the following principle activities:
IFC helped the Kyrgyz government adopt amendments to the Kyrgyz law on joint-stock companies introducing mandatory cumulative voting.
IFC advised the Tajik government on drafting and promoting the National Corporate Governance Standards, a national guidance for Tajik companies on how to improve their corporate governance.
IFC is advising the State Service for Supervision and Regulation of the Financial Market of the Kyrgyz Republic on developing a national Corporate Governance Code.
IFC partnered with a number of companies and banks in the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan to implement a Pilot Program, an assessment of corporate governance practices.
IFC provided corporate governance to more than 300 Tajik companies that helped them enable $15 million in investment.
