Almazbek Atambayev calls officials to search for new sales markets

The government of Kyrgyzstan should look for new markets for the sale of goods. The President of the country Almazbek Atambayev announced today at the presentation of credentials.

«I want to instruct the government to look for alternative markets. You should not search a lot. These are the markets of Uzbekistan and China. I recommend the entrepreneurs to ship the industrial goods to Russia by railway in sealed wagons. We must switch the Bishkek HPP to the local coal. Every cloud has a silver lining,» Almazbek Atambaev said.

«Events have shown that it is necessary to build a new railway. In due time, the government was afraid to take a soft loan because of some deputies. Life shows that they were engaged in populism,» he said.

Recall, since the evening of October 10, there is a large accumulation of heavy trucks at all checkpoints on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border due to strengthened control by Kazakhstan. The situation, despite the negotiation process between the prime ministers of the two countries, remains unresolved.
