In 1995, Checchi initiated a commercial law training project in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan under the umbrella of joint venture with another U.S. company. In 1998, after more than two years of successful training activities, the consortium received a second contract from USAID to continue the project in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan and expand its reach to include Tajikistan. The technical assistance team developed and carried out a broad range of training programs for legal professionals, aimed at fostering the development of local training capacity and thereby establishing the basis for self-sustaining programs and ongoing institutional development.
