Description

The development objectives of Programmatic Governance and Competitiveness Development Policy Operation Project for Kyrgyz Republic are as follows: (i) improving public sector governance through reforms aimed at improving public sector integrity, increasing the quality of public services, and enhancing energy sector governance; and (ii) strengthening private sector competitiveness through measures to facilitate trade, improve the business environment, and promote greater connectivity. The operation is fully aligned with the FY14-17 Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) and 2016 Performance and Learning Review (PLR) of the CPS. The CPS focuses on reducing poverty and building shared prosperity by supporting public administration and service delivery reforms, improving the business and investment climate, and strengthening stewardship of natural resources and physical infrastructure. The Kyrgyz authorities have embarked on a series of reforms to address structural impediments to growth. This operation has been prepared in coordination with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the UK’s Department for International Development (DfID), the European Union (EU), and other development partners. The IMF is implementing a three-year arrangement under the Extended Credit Facility. Other partners are providing support in the areas of public sector strengthening, anti-corruption and accountability, energy sector reform, and the business environment. Greater private investment will be supported by a better business environment and improvements in telecommunications infrastructure, as well as by more transparent and predictable government decisions stemming from the new public procurement and conflict-of-interest legislation.
