Daniel is an Aide to the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic, specialising in economics and investments.
Daniel is responsible for the daily control, monitoring and analysis of reforms and issues in economic performance and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). He is currently in charge of developing an export growth strategy for the Kyrgyz Republic. He was formerly a Senior Expert in the Department of FDI, Foreign Aid and Public-Private Partnership in the Ministry of Economy and Anti-Trust Policy where he was mainly responsible for producing policy papers aimed at creating an investment friendly environment in Kyrgyzstan.
Daniel´s key responsibilities include coordinating the work of Government Ministries and state institutions. Working within these institutions often requires navigating complex bureaucratic systems which often hinder efficient management and governance. Daniel´s aim therefore is to establish coherent systems of accountability within the Kyrgyz Government. Upon completing his Fellowship, Daniel plans to set up an inter-agency working group on optimizing the state apparatus with the aim of making the state institutions efficient and professional.
He also hopes to use his experience to build upon the UK models of Public-Private Partnership in various sectors. He hopes in particular to develop a model which will help with the effective implementation of the current ‘Safe City´ project.
