This is a quarterly summary of the major achievements of the USAID Good Governance Public Administration Strengthening Program.
The USAID Business Growth Initiative (BGI) would like to invite media representatives to a presentation of its Tourism Destination Management Program, with the participation of representatives of the private sector, sector associations and government authorities. The presentation will take place on February 25, 2015, at 13:30 pm, in the Jannat Regency Hotel, located at Aaly Tokombaev Street 21/2, Bishkek.
The objective of the event is to describe the Program to interested stakeholders, in which BGI will solicit applications from consortia of tourism organizations, formed voluntarily to develop destination management proposals to enhance tourism locations in Kyrgyzstan. The BGI team will then establish a partnership with winning consortia based on the creativity and feasibility of ideas, the demonstrated commitment of group members, and the willingness to work together to build more attractive and service-oriented tourist destinations. Selected groups will receive grant funding and technical assistance to support the implementation of their destination management plans. The plans are expected to generate greater income for local destinations as well as contribute to the development of the Kyrgyz tourism sector as a whole.
