Fourth Joint Coordination Committee Meeting of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Project for Development of Rural Business with Forest Products in the Kyrgyz Republic was held on 30 May 2017 at the State Agency on Environment Protection and Forestry under the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic.
JICA Project is implemented since 2015 and promotes business activities with forest products in 11 target forestry enterprises of Kyrgyzstan. High priority is given to activities leading to promotion of private enterprises involvement in joint forestry management (JFM) as tenants of state forest land and investors in business with non-wood forest products such as apples and apricots.
During the Joint Coordination Committee Meeting participants discussed and approved the Project activities plan as well as the structure of the Nationwide Forest products Business Action Plan that will be developed by 2018.
