BOCHAROV RUCHEI, February 08, 16:52 /ITAR-TASS/. Presidents of Russia and Kyrgyzstan, Vladimir Putin and Almazbek Atambayev, are planning to meet on Saturday for talks on the republic’s involvement in Eurasian integration, the Kremlin press service reported.
“During the meeting, the heads of state are expected to exchange views on regional and international issues, and Kyrgyzstan’s involvement in Eurasian integration,” the press service said.
In January-November 2013 trade turnover between the two countries increased by 18.3 percent as compared with the similar period of 2012 and reached up to 1.95 billion dollars.
Transfer of funds by labour migrants made considerable contribution to Kyrgyzstan’s economy. In the nine months of 2013 migrants sent over 1.5 billion dollars (30 percent of the country’s budget). A total of 648,000 Kyrgyz citizens were registered as labour migrants in 2013. At least 173,000 people have been allowed to work.
