“Our country tries to enter market of other countries. Entry of Kyrgyzstan into the Eurasian Economic Union has strengthened competition in export of domestic products. Only producers, who work with new technologies, have enough funds and can stay at market, can stand high competition. The government goal is to support and provide “long and cheap” loans for increasing competitiveness of domestic products, implementing innovations, material-technical base update, production extension”, – said Sooronbai Jeenbekov.
President stressed that in regions he had meetings with entrepreneurs who had good projects, but without collateral they could not obtain loans. These projects remained unrealized.
“While we have loan resources to support them. Your funds play a significant role in financial sector of economy and are a key factor in GDP growth and export in Kyrgyzstan.”
However, RKDF when financing projects made imbalance in the coverage of regions. Low cost or lack of collateral make a group of rural people unattractive for traditional banks. It is necessary to revise the financing policy and pay more attention to the development of regions’ welfare,” – the President said.

Joint system work will help to promote entrepreneurship, create new jobs, that will finally reduce internal and external migration.

“In 2018 RKDF approved 781 projects in total amount of USD 261,46 million. We will make effort to find and realize projects related to production in regions taking into account the specificities of each region. We will make effort to create favourable conditions for financing in agricultural industry,” – Erkin Asrandiev said.
