At the meeting the international financial institution was represented by the head of delegation of the Middle East and Central Asia Department Christian Beddies, the economist of IMF mission David Amaglobeli and the IMF Resident Representative in Kyrgyzstan Koba Gvenetadze and others. 


A purpose of the meeting was to discuss implementation of the economic program of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic, supported by the IMF extended financing facility. Representatives of the International Monetary Fund had defined areas for providing technical assistance to the National Bank of the Kyrgyz Republic, in particular, assistance in reserve management and inflation modeling. Currently the question on providing assistance to the National Bank on the above issues, according to Christian Beddies, has been positively resolved. 


The National Banks president Zina Asankozhoeva has reported that mutual understanding was reached on all issues discussed during the IMFs visit to Kyrgyzstan. "We hope that the third review of the program implementation will be successfully completed and the IMFs Board of Directors will approve it in early December, which means that Kyrgyzstan will receive funds by the end of this year. This will enable the Ministry of Finance of the Kyrgyz Republic to finance part of the budget deficit through assistance received. Also it will be a good sign for other donors and they will continue providing financial support to our country," said the head of the National Bank. 



            Kyrgyzstan needs a comprehensive national program to improve financial literacy of the population. 


This was declared by the NBKRs President Zina Asankozhoeva at a meeting with World Bank representatives. She noted that the National Bank is aware of the problem of low level funding of majority of Kyrgyzstan population and see the solution only at the national level. The National Banks President has addressed to the World Bank asking to provide counseling and financial assistance in developing a national strategy of improvement of populations financial literacy. 


Brett Coleman, a senior financial sector development expert and a team manager of financial and banking sector in Europe and Central Asia World Bank, noted: "Experience of implementing similar programs in other countries has shown that the most effective are only those projects that are based on data about actual level of knowledge of the population and provide information on specific financial products. We can advise Kyrgyzstan to start the work from diagnostics, which will identify the needs of citizens in such information and will clarify who will be involved in development and, most importantly, in implementation of the national program. This is the National Bank, and the Government, and the local government and financial sector - banks and NBFIs." 


According to Brett Coleman, one of the main questions to be asked from the population during preliminary survey of the level of financial literacy is whether the Kyrgyz citizens know their rights when they deal with financial institutions. Brett Coleman assured the National Banks President that the World Bank will support the study, which anticipates development of a national strategy of improving financial literacy. 


Besides the topic on national program of improving financial literacy of citizens, the National Bank at the meeting with the World Bank management has also raised questions related to the Kyrgyz financial sector development project and strengthening deposit protection system.
