After gaining independence in 1991, the Kyrgyz Republic made remarkable progress in democratization and transition to a market economy. However, due to the lack of competitive products other than gold and its undeveloped investment environment, it has not been able to attract enough foreign investors, and its economy has stagnated, unable to get on track toward stable economic growth. With the objective of promoting poverty reduction through economic growth based on market reform, JICA is providing cooperation, as the primary base for economic growth, to transportation infrastructure, agricultural and rural development, and human resource development for making the transition to a market economy.
