2018/09/13: Kyrgyzstan is the latest country to join OpenOwnership’s pilot program. Through this program, OpenOwnership will support the government of Kyrgyzstan in collecting and publishing high quality, open access beneficial ownership data for applicants and holders of oil, gas and mining licenses. The resulting data will be automatically available on the OpenOwnership Register, and linked to other beneficial ownership data from around the world.

A model for the former Soviet Union, Kazakhstan is charging ahead, according to a new report measuring how ICT affects competitiveness, leaving much-poorer Kyrgyzstan in its digital dust.
