Kyrgyz Republic: Second Vocational Education and Skills Development Project
Asian Development Bank | November 2016
The seven priority sectors outlined in the Kyrgyz Republic’s Medium-Term Development Plan include construction, mining, energy, tourism, textiles and garment, land transport, and agriculture/agroprocessing. These sectors jointly constitute 54% of gross domestic product and 63% of formal employment and are expected to drive the economy and create jobs for the growing number of unemployed, particularly among youth. However, many enterprises experience difficulties in finding skilled workers, underscoring the mismatch between the outputs of the education and training sector and labor market needs. The Kyrgyz Republic’s technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system is meant to develop skilled workers and craftspersons, technicians, and middle-level staff. It aims to address the Kyrgyz Republic’s human resource needs to achieve its economic objectives.
