About Kyrgyz Republic

The Kyrgyz Republic is a small, landlocked, mountainous country and the second poorest in Central Asia, with almost 40 percent of the population living below the poverty line. The nation is recovering from a deep political and economic crisis following the ousting of its president in 2010 and subsequent civil disturbances.

Despite the country’s democratic progress, impediments to development remain, including widespread corruption, low foreign investment and high unemployment. Nearly one-third of the Kyrgyz Republic’s workforce is employed abroad, reducing the available pool of qualified labor in-country. The implementation of democratic reforms remains a challenge, and limited energy resources and low agricultural productivity constrain economic growth.
