The project is funded by a US$ 33 million worth of a loan from the Export-Import Bank (Eximbank) of the Republic of Korea.
As per the contract, KT will supply and equip 2,859 teaching and computer classes for 2,766 secondary schools in Uzbekistan, with about 700 secondary schools to be equipped before the year-end.
