Trade and Economic Cooperation

The current level of bilateral trade and economic cooperation is considered low and does not fulfill the existing potential of the two countries. Kyrgyz-Pakistani Joint Ministerial Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation is operating to promote the development of trade and economic cooperation. The protocol on establishment of Kyrgyz-Pakistani Joint Ministerial Commission was signed in 1994. Three Joint Commission meetings were held in 2003, 2007 and 2017. Third Session of the Kyrgyz-Pakistani Joint Commission was held in Islamabad on January 11-12, 2017, co-chaired by the Minister of Economy of the Kyrgyz Republic Arzybek Kozhoshev and Federal Minister for Water and Power of Pakistan Khawaja Muhammad Asif, which led to signing of the Final Protocol of the Third Meeting of the Joint Ministerial Commission.
