Development of regions to solve border problems in Kyrgyzstan

The concept of regional development will solve the problems of border, high-mountain and remote areas of Kyrgyzstan. The Prime Minister Sooronbay Jeenbekov said this at a government meeting today.

According to him, to solve the problems of the development of regions that hamper the development of the country as a whole, the government revised the existing approaches. Within the framework of the regional policy concept, it is planned to develop the specialization of regions and form clusters in the medium and long term.

To develop a plan for the implementation of the concept, the plenipotentiary representatives of the Cabinet of Ministers in the regions should conduct a detailed analysis of existing and prospective capacities for processing agricultural products within a month.

The State Committee for Industry, Energy and Subsoil Use will assess existing and prospective productions, taking into account the development of the energy complex.

«Necessary conditions for servicing of the population, namely, modern service centers for people and businesses using new technologies will be created in the regions. Thus, we must improve the quality of life in the regions, improve the welfare of citizens, significantly reduce disparities in the development of the regions," Sooronbay Jeenbekov said.

He instructed within three months to submit a detailed plan for implementing the concept of regional policy in order to have time to form the country’s budget taking into account the document. Also, the head of the Cabinet stressed that the concept should be the basis for the development of the program of industrial development, development of the fuel and energy sector of the country, sectoral and territorial programs.
