About the project

In many countries, the government is the largest consumer of goods, works and services on the market. The volume of public procurement of goods, works and services in the member countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO) ranges from 10 to 20% of gross domestic product (GDP).

The World Bank, recognizing the importance of institutional strengthening of the public procurement system of the Kyrgyz Republic, launched a project named Creation of a Public Procurement and Logistics Observatory (PPLO) in the Kyrgyz Republic at the Department of Logistics of the Kyrgyz State Technical University named after I. Razzakov on May 13, 2020.
