Kyrgyz kidney beans to be processed domestically

The President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov launched a bean processing plant in Talas region. The Information Policy Department of the head of state reported.

Today, the president pays a working visit to Talas region. The head of state opened a plant for processing of kidney beans of Azra company in Ak-Dobo village of Bakai-Ata district.

At present, Kyrgyzstan exports about 90,000 tons of kidney beans annually, making a profit of about $ 70 million.

More than 150,000 people are employed in the production of beans. Not the production, but processing, entry into the market and sale of beans still remains topical. This issue began to be solved with the help of local entrepreneurs with the support of foreign investors and financial institutions of the country.

«In early 2018, I instructed the heads of the Kyrgyz-Russian Development Fund, Ayil Bank, RSK-Bank and the Guarantee Fund to turn the credit policy to the village, to send a tangible amount of resources to the regions to support rural entrepreneurs. New projects will be implemented and enterprises similar to this plant for the processing of beans will be opened,» Sooronbai Jeenbekov stressed.
