Lawmaker suggests to hear government report after it pulled out of investment deal on Smart City.

Lawmaker Dastan Bekeshev suggested to hear Government report after it pulled out of the investment deal on the implementation of Smart City project.

On January 12, the Government of Kyrgyzstan and the Huawei Technologies Co. signed an investment agreement totaling $60 million on the implementation of the Smart City project.

On March 14, the Government of Kyrgyzstan said it has decided to pull out of the deal on Smart City investment project due to default on commitments.

Dastan Bekeshev said on March 15 parliament meeting that now "we have to clear things out, what we're going to do next."

"CCTV cameras alone won't change the road safety situation, we need a number of reforms, it's not about renaming militia into police, we need other options," MP Bekeshev said.

MP Ryskeldi Mombekov asked the Government why it is seeking for an investor when Kyrgyztelecom JSC was ready to implement the Smart City project.

"Former Director of Kyrgyztelecom Mademinov has already told that the state company would need 10 million som to implement the project, that their technical base is ready for the project by 85%, and that Bishkek has 198 traffic lights, and if cameras would be installed on each of them, then they are ready. Why don't we give them a chance?" Mombekov asked.
