Kyrgyzstan included in new ranking of 50 poorest countries in world

The American financial publication Global Finance presented the traditional rating of the richest and poorest countries. Analysts ranked Kyrgyzstan at 148th place, while the country lost six positions.

When compiling the rating, the publication used the data of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, based on GDP per capita, recalculating it at purchasing power parity.

In the world ranking, Kyrgyzstan is located between Papua New Guinea and Djibouti.

According to Global Finance, $ 3,347 of the total GDP accounts for each Kyrgyzstani, which is $ 114 less compared to 2016 ($ 3,581).

As for the countries of Central Asia, Kazakhstan, which is on the 54th place ($ 25,670 per capita), is richer than Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan ( 73rd, $ 17,400) and Uzbekistan (127th, $ 6,400). Worse is only Tajikistan.

The ten richest are Qatar, Luxembourg, Macao, Singapore, Brunei, Kuwait, Ireland, Norway, the United Arab Emirates and San Marino.

The poorest are the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Liberia, Niger, Malawi, Mozambique, Guinea, Eritrea, Madagascar and the Comoros.
