BOCHAROV RUCHEI, February 08, 20:48 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was hopeful to continue positive trade and economic cooperation with Kyrgyzstan.
“Yesterday we had an opportunity to talk and not only about the event, which gave us a chance to meet. Apropos I’m thankful to you to arrive in Sochi and take time to attend the Olympic Games. We had also a chance to discuss regional problems and bilateral relations,” Putin said at a meeting with Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev on Saturday.
“Russia will remain Kyrgyzstan’s key trade and economic partner,” the Russian president said, adding “Trade is being expanded and it has increased by about 18%. I’m glad to talk about all aspects of our cooperation.”
The Kyrgyz president praises the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. “I want to congratulate you on the opening of the Olympic Games. It was amazing,” Atambayev 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.
