Government has to declare labor migrants as real investors

Labor migrants, who left Kyrgyzstan to earn money abroad, deserve a more attentive attitude from the Kyrgyz government. The Chairman of Zamandash party Zhenish Moldokmatov stated at a round table discussion «Our labor migrants — real investors in the new economy of Kyrgyzstan» in 24.kg news agency.

According to him, the government should already recognize migrants as real investors.

Some of our oligarchs earn millions here and invest in the economies of other countries. Our labor migrants earn money abroad and invest millions in the economy of the fatherland. They invest not only in the consumer market but also in new industries and enterprises.

In 2017, labor migrants have transferred $ 2,482.2 billion that is 34.3 percent of the country’s GDP.
