World Bank Funding Increased for Digital CASA Project

Bishkek – The Ministry of Digital Development of Kyrgyzstan is set to receive an additional $7 million from the International Development Association (World Bank) for the Digital CASA project. The agreement for this funding was approved by the Committee on International Affairs, Defense, Security, and Migration of the Kyrgyzstan Parliament in the second reading.

Deputy Minister of Digital Development, Zamirbek Kozhomuratov, announced that the IDA will be providing an interest-free loan for 50 years with a 10-year grace period. The need for additional funding arose as the project was initially developed in 2021, with evolving needs and requirements since then.

The additional funding will primarily be used for the implementation of the project’s second component, which focuses on the creation of a state cloud storage system. This platform will bring together the information resources of all government agencies into a centralized location for storing and processing data. It aims to ensure the safe and uninterrupted delivery of public services to citizens.

The total cost of the Digital CASA project is $50 million, with half of this amount being provided as a grant by the World Bank. This initiative is crucial for enhancing the digital infrastructure and government services in Kyrgyzstan.
