Within the framework of the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Askar Mamin’s official visit to the Kyrgyz Republic, a meeting with the President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov took place. During the conversation, topical issues of bilateral trade, economic and investment cooperation were discussed.

In Bishkek, Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Askar Mamin took part in the VIII Meeting of the Kazakh-Kyrgyz Intergovernmental Council.

During the discussion at the meeting, a thorough exchange of views on topical issues of bilateral cooperation took place, promising areas were identified and joint plans were outlined aimed at deepening trade and economic cooperation. Special attention was paid to the development of industrial and investment cooperation, the water and energy sector, the strengthening of cross-border interaction, as well as the implementation of joint projects in the field of digitalization and the space sector.

“The Republic of Kazakhstan is one of the main trading partners of Kyrgyzstan. Kazakhstan’s share in the trade turnover of the Kyrgyz Republic is more than 11%, including in export — 14%,” said the Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic Muhammedkaliy Abilgaziyev.
