(ii) Competition/Market Structure - The project will ensure implementation of market-oriented management and operational practices at the Airport.

(iii) Institutional Functioning - Sector reorganisation and transformation of existing institutions into a network of commercially oriented, financially self-sufficient companies constitutes a pre-condition of project approval by KfW's and EBRD's respective managements.

Environmental Impact

This project, screened B/0, involves a complete modernisation of the passenger terminal building and rehabilitation of runways at Tashkent Airport. An environmental analysis is currently being undertaken by independent consultants which will involve the identification and assessment of all significant environmental effects associated with the rehabilitation plans for the runways, taxiways and apron, including potential for increased ground and surface water pollution caused by runoff during construction and from increased use of the infrastructure. In addition, noise/air pollution from extra traffic movements and ecological impact on existing and proposed land use in the vicinity of the airport will be analysed. The final report will include an environmental, health and safety action plan to be carried out within the project to ensure compliance with relevant national and international standards and Bank requirements.

Technical Cooperation
