It was organized in Osh in April 13-15, 2017, by both JSC “Jer Azygy” and the UNDP program “Socio-economic development”. Women occupy leadership positions in businesses more and more often. They are concerned with the issues of corporate social responsibility and the successful socio-economic development of the country. This conference aimed at assisting women in their work, providing them with useful information and innovative solutions.

During the conference, Nurzat Abdyrasulova presented investment opportunities available within the framework of the KyrSEFF+ program to the participants of the conference.
One aim of the KyrSEFF+ program is the promotion of green technologies. And since the SME business sector is the engine of the economy, entrepreneurs are provided with financial and technical support in the implementation of energy and resource saving projects, which are designed to reduce harmful effects on the environment.

The regional conference brought together leaders of women’s business associations in the Fergana Valley (Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan), leading experts, representatives of international organizations, state bodies and local government of Kyrgyzstan, deputies of Parliament – Jogorky Kenesh and the City Parliament.
