About Kyrgyz Republic
The Kyrgyz Republic is the only freely elected parliamentary democracy in post-Soviet Central Asia. As such, in support of long-term stability and prosperity, the United States focuses on consolidating, sustaining and strengthening the country’s hard-won democratic gains while promoting economic progress, strengthened public services and stronger ties across the region.
USAID works with the Kyrgyz Republic to build on progress in democratic governance by partnering with institutions, promoting civic engagement, improving delivery of public services and expanding economic opportunity. USAID in the Kyrgyz Republic also works with the regional USAID Mission to Central Asia to advance the U.S. Government’s New Silk Road initiative, which increases connections between Central and South Asia — including Afghanistan — to foster greater stability and prosperity across the region.
