Economic diplomacy

The Economic diplomacy of the Kyrgyz Republic, as part of our country's foreign policy, serves for the development of bilateral trade and economic relations with Turkey and the promotion of Kyrgyz export products to Turkey, as well as attracting investment and tourists to our country.

In Kyrgyzstan, there is the most liberal legislative (detailed information please find at the link) and tax base for doing business, which differs from the countries of the Central Asian region, in particular VAT-12%, income tax -10% and profit tax-10%, as well as low business expenses, for example, the cost of electricity is the lowest 0.03 US dollars per 1 kW / h, etc. Business registration takes only 3 days.

Kyrgyzstan is a member of the WTO, which gives it access to the markets of all members of the organization, which now consists of 164 countries, including China. Our country is also a member of the Eurasian Economic Union, which allows duty-free export of its goods to Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia with a total population of 180 million people. Also, Kyrgyzstan within the framework of the GSP + program from the European Union has the opportunity to export 6,200 items of goods duty-free to the EU market.

An agreement on mutual promotion and protection of investments is in force between Kyrgyzstan and Turkey, which also facilitates the activities of Kyrgyz and Turkish companies.

Priority sectors of the economy of our country are the fields of transport, energy, IT technology, processing, and light industry, tourism, mining, and agriculture.
