Today, March 24, the U.S. Government commemorates World TB Day by reaffirming its commitment to eradicating tuberculosis (TB) with the Kyrgyz Republic. Through the USAID Defeat TB project, the U.S. is investing over $12 million over five years in the health and future of the Kyrgyzstani people.
Brief summary of USAID activities in the 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.
The main goal of the Smart Waters project is to address the knowledge dis-lock in the region in water sector, build working relations among water managers and specialists, and demonstrate the potential of the basin management approach and cooperation with the academia.
From January 26-29, seven tour operators from the Kyrgyz Republic participated in the Eastern Mediterranean Travel and Tourism (EMITT) fair in Istanbul, with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). In partnership with the Turkish travel and media firm, Gezimanya, USAID also hosted several promotional events at the exhibition to generate additional interest in Kyrgyzstan among foreign tour operators, tourism social media bloggers and traditional media outlets. As a result, Kyrgyzstani tour operators negotiated 42 potential contracts for the 2017 summer season.
