An interdepartmental working group to develop measures and draft normative legal acts on the establishment of the Ombudsman institution in Kyrgyzstan has been created at the Economy Ministry. IBC is among the initiators of this initiative aimed at resolving disputed situations among entrepreneurs and the State. As is known, entrepreneurs often face certain difficulties in interacting with state bodies, in particular, in resolving court disputes in the tax, customs and land areas. At the first meeting, the WG members were recommended to study the world practice of countries which have institutes for the protection of business entities. It is expected that the comparative analysis will be presented at the next WG meeting.
