Bishkek, Sept. 28, 2017 / Kabar /. Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic Sapar Isakov met with the World Bank Regional Director for Central Asia Lilia Burunciuc, the press service of the government reported.
The sides discussed the current projects and further prospects for joint cooperation.
The Head of Government said that the World Bank is one of the key partners of Kyrgyzstan implementing a number of socially significant projects in the country.
"Our recent joint efforts are aimed at ensuring the social welfare of the country, especially in the framework of our common Digital CASA project. In addition, we are interested in the joint implementation of the Taza Koom project, which will also optimize public expenses. Universal informatization will make many positive changes in the country," Sapar Isakov said.
The prime minister also said that in the near future it is planned to launch an electronic portal of public services.
He also talked about the Government's plans to provide Internet communications to remote villages and regions of the country.
Sapar Isakov stressed that without the presence of broadband Internet connection in every village of the republic, a full-fledged implementation of the Taza Koom project is impossible. The Head of Government noted that within two years it is planned to reduce the cost for Internet services and increase its speed.
Regional Director of the World Bank for Central Asia Lilia Burunchuk especially noted that she considers the implementation of the Taza Koom project a key factor for the country's further development. At the same time, she stressed the importance of feedback from the country's population, on making certain adjustments, if necessary, for more effective functioning.
In addition, she said that representatives of the World Bank have carefully studied the governmental program "Forty steps to a new era" and prepared their recommendations for its implementation.
Lilia Burunciuc also expressed readiness to expand joint cooperation on the implementation of other projects in various sectors of the country's economy.
