The Ministry of Social Development of Kyrgyzstan proposes to simplify the requirements for hiring people with disabilities. The State Secretary Kanybek Adiev told at a parliament meeting.
According to him, there are 193,000 registered people with disabilities in the Kyrgyz Republic on the basis of the ministry.
«There is a five percent quota for hiring PWDs, regardless of ownership. We offer government agencies to hire them without a competition,» Kanybek Adiev said.
The Parliament is discussing a change to the Law on the Rights and Guarantees of Persons with Disabilities, where it is proposed to create a council on providing infrastructure and a register of people with disabilities.
