It is proposed to create private commercial pension funds in Kyrgyzstan. The Government submitted the draft amendments to the law on accumulated pension funds to the Parliament.
As Chairman of the State Service for Regulation and Supervision over the Financial Market Sanzhar Mukanbetov stressed at the meeting of the Committee on Social Issues, Education, Science, Culture and Health of the Parliament, there is only one non-state pension fund in Kyrgyzstan as of today.

About 17 billion soms have been accumulated on the accounts of the State Pension Fund. They are managed by the Social Fund. We propose to open a window for creation of private pension funds.Sanzhar Mukanbetov
