The EDB assists the Ministry of Finance of the Kyrgyz Republic in assessing fiscal risks

21 December 2020

Moscow, 21 December 2020. The Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) hosted a workshop on the Global Practice in Assessing Fiscal Risks for the Ministry of Finance of the Kyrgyz Republic. The event was the final stage of a technical assistance project organised by the EDB aimed at providing economic development advice to its member states.

The EDB provided technical assistance at the request of the Ministry of Finance of the Kyrgyz Republic by engaging consultants and conducting research on the Global Practice in Assessing Fiscal Risks. Experts reviewed global practices to suggest methodologies for assessing fiscal risks for the Bank’s member countries.

The research results will promote the implementation of The Strategy for the Development of Public Finance Management in the Kyrgyz Republic for 2017-2025. “The public authorities of the EDB member countries are interested in identifying factors that may cause deviations from the planned fiscal indicators. This is necessary to devise economic development scenarios and effective fiscal policy responses to external shocks. The methodology for the systematic fiscal risk analysis includes a study of the fiscal system’s resilience to possible shocks, the development of fiscal sustainability indicators and recommendations to ensure fiscal sustainability,” said Evgeny Vinokurov, Chief Economist at the EDB and the EFSD.

The EDB provides technical assistance to fulfil its mission and enhance investments, including through cross-country, country, sectoral and innovative research aimed at promoting economic growth, the establishment and development of market economies in its member countries, as well as the expansion of trade and economic ties among them.
