The Kyrgyz Republic (also known as Kyrgyzstan) is a landlocked high altitude country sandwiched between Kazakhstan in the north and China in the south and bordering Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in the west. It is approximately 5 times the size of Switzerland and has a population of ~ 6 million people. Kyrgyz and Russian languages are both official — a legacy of the USSR which built this country’s industry and created a large class of educated people.

Kyrgyzstan has become a comfortable regional and international investment hub, whose laws are the most liberal among the post-Soviet nations and whose service infrastructure is durable and inexpensive. Kyrgyz Republic is a real parliamentary democracy with a very balanced Constitution built on the anti-authoritarian traditions of the Kyrgyz people. The country is abound with investment opportunities and wants to present them to the international audience.
