Business of Bashkortostan intends to develop economic ties with Kyrgyzstan

A delegation from Bashkortostan arrived in Kyrgyzstan to strengthen economic relations between the two regions. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry reported.

The entrepreneurs met with the head of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Temir Sariev. The delegation includes the Trade Representative of the Russian Federation in the Kyrgyz Republic Ainur Samanov, First Deputy Minister of Foreign Economic Relations and Congress Activities of Bashkortostan Lena Izotova, Consultant of the Trade Mission of the Russian Federation in the Kyrgyz Republic Nikolay Babkin and head of the Department of Exhibition and Fair Activities of the autonomous non-commercial organization Export Support Center of the Republic of Bashkortostan Lilia Zulkarneva.

The parties discussed prospects for the development of economic ties. They noted the importance of holding joint business forums and exhibitions that will help entrepreneurs find new partners.

To date, Kyrgyzstan exports metals, foodstuffs and engineering products to Bashkortostan.

«Bashkortostan is interested in the supply of food, vegetables, fruits and light industry goods. But the high cost of logistics in the countries of Central Asia creates certain difficulties. To support businessmen, the authorities of Bashkortostan temporarily reimburse part of the transportation costs. At the same time, the parties are confident that this is a temporary solution, and after logistical issues are resolved, international cargo transportation will become more accessible to everyone,» the Chamber of Commerce and Industry noted.
