Key issues of the Kyrgyzstan republic's accession to the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan have been resolved successfully pending some still to settle, the Central Asian state's Prime Minister, Zhantoro Satybaldiyev, told a commission joining the two parties.
Premier Satybaldiyev said “a great deal of work” had been done on organisational and technical issues and now a road map was under consideration. Some issues were subject to additional discussion with customs services, he added.
The prime minister urged Russia to tackle the problem of Kyrgyz labor migrants now resident in Russia. He said a migration quota could be agreed that would entirely settle concerns and be in both sides’ best interests.
Co-chairman of the commission on the Russian side and Federal Customs Service head Andrei Belyaninov said Kyrgyzstan was of increasing interest for Russian investors as the country had made considerable progress in improving its economic performance.
The commission is due to resolve on Tuesday issues of co-operation between Russia's Almazintech consulting and engineering activity and the republic's Kyrgyzaltyn together with promotion of Russian Superjet aircraft in the Kyrgyz market and the two states’ interaction in generating hydroelectric power.
Official data records that over the nine months of 2013, trade turnover between Kyrgyzstan and Russia totaled $1.5 billion.
