BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan

President Sooronbay Jeenbekov on Sunday called on Turkish investors to invest in Kyrgyzstan.

“There is an environment of trust between Kyrgyzstan and Turkey. Our bilateral relations are enhancing,” Jeenbekov said in his address at the Turkey-Kyrgyzstan Business Forum in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek.

Jeenbekov said Turkish businessmen invested more than $500 million in Kyrgyzstan since 1995.

“We wish to export ecological agriculture products to Turkey,” he added.

The president said the bilateral trade volume between Kyrgyzstan and Turkey was around $356 million.

“Our [bilateral] trade volume increased 18 percent in the last 25 years. We do not use our full potential. We need to struggle to increase trade volume to $1 billion,” Jeenbekov added.
