Mineral And Energy Exports Central To Economy

A landlocked mountainous nation nestled between China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, the Kyrgyz Republic, or Kyrgyzstan, is a mineral-based economy, with gold, mercury and natural gas as its primary exports. In recent years, the country has implemented market reforms to diversify its economic base and attract foreign investment through projects in tourism, information technology, hydroelectricity, and other sustainable growth industries.

Yet, it still faces hurdles, including a lack of administrative transparency, a fragile banking system, and regulatory inconsistencies that undermine investor confidence. Additionally, Kyrgyzstan also faces weaknesses such as vulnerability linked to its economic reliance on Russia and China, and a large share of informality in the labor market.
