THE PRESIDENT SIGNED THE LAW “ON GUARANTEE FUNDS IN THE KYRGYZ REPUBLIC”
On April 13, 2019, the President of the Kyrgyz Republic, Sooronbai Jeenbekov, signed the Law “On Guarantee Funds in the Kyrgyz Republic”.
The law was enacted by the Jogorku Kenesh of the Kyrgyz Republic on March 7, 2019.
The purpose of the enacted Law is to improve the legal regulation for establishment and development of guarantee funds in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The law defines the legal and economic bases for establishment and activity of guarantee funds.
With its entry into force, the current Law of the Kyrgyz Republic of July 30, 2013 No. 167 “On Guarantee Funds in the Kyrgyz Republic” will become invalid.
The law enters into force 15 days after the date of official publication.
“When I was the Prime Minister, we established Guarantee Fund. Why regions were not developing? Because loans and fiscal policy did not reach them. Entrepreneurs did not have property to put as collateral. Now attention is paid to this problem and state Guarantee Fund helps them. Financing from Guarantee Fund has tripled, guarantees amounting to KGS 755 million were issued to 655 projects. Partner banks of Guarantee Fund doubled loan issue and generally issued loans amounting to about KGS 3 billion. This amount will increase, special attention will be paid to the regions and processing”.
