Moscow, 22 December 2020. The Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) presented the results of its study entitled Assessing the Impact of Fiscal Policy on Economic Growth in the EDB Member States. The study was carried out per request of  the Ministry of Finance of the Kyrgyz Republic and financed by the EDB Technical Assistance Fund.

The key objective of the research was to develop recommendations on how to strengthen the country’s fiscal capacity.

The resulting multiplier estimates, according to the EDB analysts, would help the authorities to improve fiscal policy development in terms of planning and forecasting its impact on economic activity.
