Within the framework of the ESRC (AAP2015), the European Union (EU) provides financial assistance to the Kyrgyz Republic during Kyrgyz fiscal years 2016-2018. This assistance is provided through a foreign currency facility channeled into the national budget. The overall objective is to support the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic to implement structural reforms in the Education Sector in order to enhance the quality of human capital, alleviate poverty, stimulate socio-economic development, and improve the quality of life of the citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic.
Under the EU guidelines for budgetary aid operations, the disbursement of EU budgetary support to the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic is conditional upon the implementation of a set of reform outcomes agreed between the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic and the EU. A maximum total amount of € 30 million could be transferred to the Kyrgyz state budget during the fiscal years 2016-2018. The Financing Agreement between the European Commission and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic was signed in April 2016.
