These days in Tunisia is taking place a meeting of the countries participating in the global joint program on the universal inclusion of the migration component in development strategies. Among the eight countries, Kyrgyzstan is also participating by means of Skype.
The goal of the global program is to encourage governments and their partners to maximize the positive impact of migration processes, namely, to help manage migration processes in order to maximize the impact of human resource development and minimize risks for migrants and their families in sending and receiving communities. The global program consists of four major components: the formation of a coordination mechanism on the interaction of migration and development; improvement of the database on migration and development; work with diasporas; capacity building of the executive power structures in the field of migration.
The results of Kyrgyzstan for the period from 2014 to the present time were presented by the members of the technical group on the implementation of the global program on the ubiquitous integration of the migration component into development strategies. Among the significant results, the expert of the department of financial and economic analysis and development monitoring Ainura Umetova noted the following: the creation of the Coordination Council on migration issues under the Vice Prime Minister; systematization of the database in the field of migration, on the basis of which the program documents in the field of migration are developed; creation of a discussion platform between the diasporas and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic Forum Mekendeshter; the development of a program to implement the "Migration and Development" courses.
