Kyrgyz Republic - Country assistance strategy (English)

This Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) for the Kyrgyz Republic seeks to support the Government's development priorities. They are: i) to attain sustained growth, particularly in the rural areas; ii) to reduce poverty; iii) to improve governance; and iv) to strengthen public finance. The CAS proposes an International Development Association lending program of $185 million for FY99-01. The program includes two adjustment credits--one to achieve financial sustainability of the state pension system, and the other to improve the environment for private sector investment. The CAS program also includes focused economic and sector work to underpin the lending program and help strengthen public finances in preparation for the day when the Kyrgyz Republic no longer requires budgetary support and would be better able to borrow on non-concessional terms. Over the next three years, the Bank Group will also continue support for aid coordination and institution building. Institutional weakness in the implementation of Bank operations, and a stagnation in growth are the main risks the CAS program. A pro-active program of financial, technical and intellectual support for continued reform in the Kyrgyz Republic is the main safeguard against such risks. Risks outside the control of the Bank and the Government include lower commodity prices and political change in neighboring countries.
