Kyrgyz Republic

PVS Shipping Line

Economic Overview

Kyrgyzstan is a country with a dominant agricultural sector. Cotton, tobacco, wool and meat are the main agricultural products, although only tobacco and cotton are exported in any significant quantity.

Industrial exports include gold, mercury, uranium, natural gas and electricity. The economy depends heavily on gold exports – mainly from output at the Kumtor gold mine and on remittances from Kyrgyzstani migrant workers in Russia.

The latest government has developed a plan for economic development in coordination with its international donors, and has also expressed its intent to join the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
