«The 2020 pandemic had a negative impact on development of the tourism industry in our country. The number of foreign tourists dropped sharply. To date, the number of tourists visiting Kyrgyzstan begins to increase again thanks to the efforts of government agencies and the tourism business.

The main reasons for arrival of foreign tourists are ecological attractiveness of Kyrgyzstan, beautiful nature of the mountain landscape, a variety of natural and climatic conditions, historical ties with the Great Silk Road, nomadic traditions, cultural wealth and hospitality of the Kyrgyz people,» Sadyr Japarov stressed.
