World Bank funding boost for Kyrgyzstan dairy industry

The World Bank has approved US$5m in financing to support a project designed to boost the productivity of dairy farms in Kyrgyzstan.

The World Bank has approved US$5m in financing to support a project designed to boost the productivity of dairy farms in Kyrgyzstan.

The Kyrgyz Republic Integrated Dairy Productivity Improvement Project aims to “enhance dairy animal productivity and milk quality on farms in the country’s Issyk-Kul region”, the World Bank said in a statement. The financing comprises a $2.25m grant with the remainder of the amount as a concessional credit.

Jean-Michel Happi, the World Bank’s country manager for Kyrgyzstan , said the project “will increase production and make the export of Kyrgyz dairy products more sustainable, increase incomes of dairy farmers, and create new jobs along the dairy supply chain”.

Happi added: “In the future, once total output of milk is increased and its quality is upgraded, exporting to neighbouring countries such as China, Afghanistan, Pakistan and beyond, should become possible.”

According to the World Bank, agriculture represents about 15% of the Kyrgyz gross domestic product. “Kyrgyz dairy products have a reputation for being organic and tasty because of the production model based on natural pastures.”

However, the World Bank said “most local milk producers and processors are finding it difficult to capitalise on new market opportunities” due to their inability to meet animal health, food safety and quality standards of the Eurasian Economic Union, which the country joined last year.

What’s missing from your IPO industry assessment?

IPO activity all but stopped in 2020, as the investment community grew wary of the effects of COVID-19 on economies. No matter how deserving a business was of flotation, momentum was halted by concerns of when a ‘new normal’ of working patterns and trade would set in. Recently, sentiment has changed. Flotations picked up again during the second half of 2021, and now in 2022 the mood is decidedly optimistic. Business leaders have their eyes on fast rebounding economies, buoyant market indices and the opportunity once again to take their businesses public. As a result, global IPOs are expected to hit back this year.
