Not migrants. Citizens working abroad should be called supporters

Deputy Kanybek Imanaliev said that it is wrong to call citizens, working abroad, migrants. They should be called supporters. He stated this today at the parliamentary hearings on the support of compatriots abroad.

Kanybek Imanaliev recalled that every third Kyrgyz citizen is a migrant. And if annually $ 11 million is received from the development of the Kumtor deposit, the migrants transfer $ 2 billion.

«They are not migrants, they are investors, supporters. They build gyms and kindergartens in their homeland. When we met with our compatriots abroad, they asked to solve the problem of road accidents in Kyrgyzstan,» the deputy noted.
