The OPEC International Development Fund provided US$ 54 million in a soft loan to Uzbekistan for a project to improve drinking water supply in 22 settlements of Namangan’s Yangikurgan district, the Foreign Ministry said.

The agreement signing ceremony reportedly took place yesterday in Vienna.

Within the framework of the project, a “water supply infrastructure meeting international standards” will be set, thanks to which about 200 thousand residents of rural areas of Namangan province will have access to clean drinking water.

Since 1999, the Fund has implemented seven public sector projects in Uzbekistan total worth of about US$ 80 million.
