Sooronbai Jeenbekov: My promises to increase salaries will be fulfilled

«My promises to increase the salaries of teachers and doctors will be consistently fulfilled. Salaries of doctors have been raised, now it’s the turn of the teachers,» said the President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov at a meeting with residents of Sokuluk district of Chui region.

The head of state noted that from the first days after taking office, he began to work on the fulfillment of his election campaign promises.

The main of them are the development of the regions, provision of the population with clean drinking water, the improvement of the irrigation system in the country, the merciless fight against corruption.

«I have promised the people one more important thing. This is a salary increase for teachers and doctors in the country. But in order to raise wages, it is necessary to improve the economic situation of the country, stop the theft of the state budget, increase profits. In 2018, we worked in this direction and created the necessary basis for improvement of the living conditions of the population. The salary of medical workers was increased since October 1, 2018. At this stage, salaries of family doctors and nurses, medical practitioners and workers of paramedic-obstetric centers have been raised. At the next stage, wages of employees of stationary medical institutions will be raised. The government together with the Ministry of Health are already working in this direction,» the president summed up.
