BISHKEK, February 3. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan will now be able to export more than 6,000 types of goods to the European Union (EU) duty-free, the country’s Economy Ministry said on Wednesday.

"The European Commission has informed us with a verbal note that our republic received a GSP+ status [Generalized System of Preferences]," the ministry said adding that Kyrgyzstan now holds the right to import many goods, first of all agricultural, to EU member countries duty-free.

The economy ministry reminded that Kyrgyz exporters paid customs duties of 14.6% for fruits and vegetables and up 5-9% for garments when exporting their products to EU. "As participants of GSP+, Kyrgyz exporters will now export these goods to EU member countries at zero rates," the ministry added.
