The exhibition will gather some 55 companies that produce products and services in Kyrgyzstan.

“We have organized the EXPO at a high state level with the support from the Economy Ministry,” said Zarina Chekirbayeva, AmCham’s executive director. “The exhibition is unique in terms of its content and format — it will gather companies that produce their products in Kyrgyzstan and plan to expand their business abroad. To attract partners and investors, we have been promoting the exhibition at the international level, inviting business-community representatives from both CIS and non-CIS countries.”      

Speaking at the meeting of the Council for Development of Business and Investment under the Kyrgyz Government on May 30, Kyrgyzstan Prime Minister Sooronbai Jeenbekov said that support of exporters is a priority for the Kyrgyz government.

He said that the government must provide the maximum support to exporters, including by providing them with long-term low-interest loans.
