Prime Minister instructs to conduct thorough analysis of reasons preventing development of regions

Bishkek, Feb.22, 2018 / Kabar /. The State Agency for Local Government and Interethnic Relations (SALGIR) under the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic presented its activities on the development of Local Self-Government for the period from 2013 to 2017 at a Governmental Meeting today, the press service of the Government reported. Chairman of the SALGIR Bakhtiyar Saliev informed that within the framework of the implementation of the National Strategy for Sustainable Development of the Kyrgyz Republic (NSSDKR) for the period 2013-2017, the Program for the Development of Local Self-Government was developed. «This program was aimed at increasing the responsibility and optimizing the Local Self-Government authorities, focusing on the needs of citizens, strengthening financial sustainability, expanding the resource base and local economic development, as well as improving the organizational and legal performance of local authorities,» he said. At the same time, despite measures taken during the reporting period, the number of subsidized rural administrations increased from 362 to 382, and the number of self-sufficient rural administrations decreased from 91 to 71 units. The main reasons for this phenomenon were low economic activity and inefficient use of the available economic potential on the areas. Isakov instructed the department to conduct a thorough analysis of the reasons that impede the development of the regions. «Perhaps there are other factors that negatively affect the economic performance of the subsidized regions. President Sooronbay Jeenbekov often raises issues of regional development in his appeals. We must take them into account. Give us a carefully researched analytical summary,» the Head of the Government said, urging to pay special attention on increasing the staff potential of Heads of Local Self-Government authorities. "In near future, the national campaign Taza Jashoo (Pure Life) will be launched. This campaign should be carried out at the highest level, as it is aimed at improving the social infrastructure, the sanitary condition of urban and rural sites, planting trees, cleaning and landscaping in all regions of the country. I intend to personally coordinate the implementation of this movement,” Isakov said.

SSCEC’s measures and tasks for countering corruption and identified decisions of the Security Council from Feb. 8, 2018 were discussed at the meeting. The Head of State stressed that the Financial Police was tasked with counteracting economic crime, but an analysis of the results of their activities shows a serious lack of measures taken both by the leadership of the SSCEC and Financial Police. «There are facts when criminal cases are opened in order to exert pressure on entrepreneurs and extort money from them. Complaints by citizens and honest entrepreneurs are not stopped on unlawful actions of the employees of the state agencies. There are also facts when the employees of state authorities are becoming the so-called »protection racket« of dishonest representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, »Jeenbekov stressed. The President specified the insufficient work of the Financial Police to counteract the production and sale of counterfeit alcohol products, the detection of underground gambling establishments, the suppression of smuggling of fuel and lubricants in the regions of the republic and thus he demanded to strengthen work in these areas. The Head of State also emphasized the need to concentrate the main activities of the Financial Police on identifying and suppressing economic, official and corruption crimes, eliminating corruption schemes in the economic sphere and the public sector.

Computerization of Kyrgyz language discussed at Kyrgyz National Academy of Sciences

Bishkek, Feb.20, 2018 / Kabar /. The National Academy of Science of the Kyrgyz Republic (NASKR) hosted a discussion on computerization of the Kyrgyz language. Creator of Tamga-KIT Program, Emil Asanov spoke about the problems of computerization of the Kyrgyz language and the possibilities of developing additional programs for working in the Kyrgyz language, including a ready-to-use speech synthesizer program, the press service of the National Academy of Sciences of the Kyrgyz Republic reported. Asanov also suggested placing a number of digitized useful book editions on the site of the Central Scientific Library of the NASKR. President of the NASKR, Academician Murat Djumataev further approved step-by-step planning of the joint scientific project of Asanov's developments. «The most acute issues of computerization of the Kyrgyz language are mostly relevant for institutions that study humanities and social sciences (Institute of Language and Literature, Institute of History and Cultural Heritage, Institute of Philosophy). Fusing into the general trend of digitalization with progressive movement we will be able to achieve set goals within several years,» the Academician said. Candidate of Philology Nurzina Yysaeva shared her opinion as a user of Tamga-KIT Program. «Perhaps one of the reasons for low level of consumer audience of this program is insufficiently active use of computers by representatives of both middle and older generation. Over the past five or six years, the number of people who do not imagine their daily work without a computer has increased, and along with this, the population's need for your programs is growing and will continue to grow,» she stressed. Scientists of the NASKR, employees of scientific research institutions, representatives of the National Commission on State Language under the President of the Kyrgyz Republic and public figures participated in the discussion.
