Bishkek, Feb. 20, 2018 / Kabar /. Developed regions - a developed country. This will be a priority in my presidential activity, President Sooronbay Jeenbekov said during his two-day working visit to Batken oblast, where he met with residents of Leilek district, Isfana and Suluktu towns.
"Iskhak Razakov, an outstanding public official, who was born in Leilek region, is an example of honesty, purity and love for his homeland. His words "If I am clean, you will be clean, then society will be clean" should become the main principles of our days," Jeenbekov said.
The Head of State reminded that by his Decree, 2018 was declared as the Year of Regional Development.
"The main problems in the regions are the construction of social facilities, infrastructure development, irrigation, clean water supply, job creation and marketing of agricultural products, which will lead to a reduction in migration. The most important thing is a planned, targeted, effective use of budgetary, grant and investment funds. It is also necessary to give more opportunities to local authorities, while increasing their responsibility," the President said.
