Almazbek Atambayev: Kyrgyzstan recognized by reforms

«Today, national resources are not being sold for a song," Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev said at a meeting of the National Council for Sustainable Development. According to him, earlier all knew Kyrgyzstan «by Motuyev’s face.»

«Now they recognize the country by the World Nomad Games, honest elections, reforms in politics and economy. Today, Kyrgyzstan is one of the ten countries of the world recommended to tourists for visiting. The President is confident that this is not only due to natural wealth, but thanks to security and reliability," Almazbek Atambayev said.

«Remember, four years ago, many predicted an economic collapse, because the country was on the brink of it. But we have passed through all the trials with dignity. Our country became one of the ten countries that received  GSP + status from the European Union," Almazbek Atambayev said.

Despite the impact of the global financial crisis, the country’s GDP shows stable growth. And the Kyrgyz som is one of the most stable currencies of the CIS.

The President said that national resources are no longer sold for a song. As an example, he cited the Jerooy field, « which one again tires to speculate.»

«The license for Jerooy was sold for $ 100 million. The winner paid the former owner other $ 65 million, although he officially bought a license for 300 soms," Almazbek Atambayev concluded.
