Kyrgyz government doesn’t help agriculture 

Leader of Respublika - Ata Jurt Omurbek Babanov said that the Kyrgyz government doesn't help the domestic agricultural producers as  it is done in Russia and Kazakhstan. He stated this today at a meeting of the Parliament.

According to him, since Kyrgyzstan has joined the EEU, the country's trade turnover fell by 19 percent. But the Cabinet doesn't do anything to change the situation.

He recalled Sooronbay Jeenbekov about the idea to issue loans to farmers at 7 percent per annum, which the Cabinet didn't support. Meanwhile, Russia allocated 220 billion rubles in subsidies and grants for agriculture. Kazakhstan reduced interest rate on loans from 15 to 6 percent. 

"You have created a program for support of the export. Then say, that export-oriented companies will be exempted of all inspections for three years. But how will this help to increase exports?" Omurbek Babanov concluded.
