The project was started in April 2011 and was terminated by the end of the year. The main aim of the project was to create a conceptual framework for a cross-sectoral dialogue between state structures, businesses and NGOs to discuss the nexus between governance, conflict prevention and investment climate. This should help to bridge the gap between policy development and public understanding of these issues.
The following activities have been completed within the frame of the project:
Open meeting titled: “Fighting Corruption: Importance of Preventive Measures”;
Roundtable titled: “Problems of Cross-Border Trade in the South of Kyrgyzstan” conducted in Osh;
Research trip to the south of Kyrgyzstan, including conducting interviews with local entrepreneurs and other stakeholders and collecting data for the Investment Now (IN) magazine;
Survey on Corporate Social Responsibility in Mining;
Writing and editing articles for the Investment Now (IN) magazine;
Open meeting in Bishkek on Corporate Social Responsibility in the Mining Sector;
IBC Annual General Meeting;
Open meeting on WTO and Customs Union.
The following activities are planned to be finalized in 2012:
Release of IN on Reconstruction and Development of Entrepreneurship in the South of Kyrgyzstan.
The project was implemented in 2011 with support of the OSCE Centre in Bishkek.
