Bishkek (AKIpress) - Structural reforms remain vital for enhancing Kyrgyzstan’s growth potential, IMF mission said in a statement issued following a visit to Bishkek on May 6-16 to hold discussions for the sixth and final review under a three-year Extended Credit Facility arrangement.
The mission urged the Kyrgyz authorities to approve swiftly the Banking Code, Payments System Law, and Anti-Money Laundering/Combating Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) legislation currently in the parliament.
Adopting this legislation would be a major step forward in developing the financial sector and enable it to support strong private sector-led growth. It will modernize the resolution regime, streamline the supervisory framework, and bring the AML/CFT framework in line with best international practice.
Speeding up the public financial sector management reforms will help to increase further the transparency of the public finances.
