About Kyrgyz Republic

The Kyrgyz Republic is a small, landlocked, mountainous country in Central Asia with a population of just over 5.5 million people. It is the second-poorest country in Central Asia, with one-third of the population living below the poverty line. Following the ousting of its president in 2010 and subsequent civil disturbances, the Kyrgyz Republic is recovering from a deep political and economic crisis.

Despite the country’s democratic progress, impediments to development remain, including widespread corruption, low foreign investment and a high unemployment rate. Approximately one-third of the Kyrgyz Republic’s workforce is employed abroad, reducing the available pool of qualified labor. The implementation of democratic reforms remains a challenge, and limited energy resources and low agricultural productivity contribute to insufficient economic growth.
