Kyrgyzstan – Legal Infrastructure for a Market Economy Project
The Legal Infrastructure for a Market Economy Project provided technical assistance to develop commercial law and a modern legal culture in Kyrgyzstan. The project worked with government counterparts to draft and review legislation and develop new legal structures; organized seminars and workshops for legal professionals, educators, and the business community on current law and practice; and promoted legal awareness by producing and broadly distributing a wide range of legal information products. The project played an active role in drafting efforts related to the Land Code, the Law on Land Governance, the Law on Commercial Arbitration, the Civil Code, the Tax Code, and other commercial legislation. Project personnel also worked directly with businessmen and civil society groups to teach them how to use the law in their work and in their daily lives.
