Kyrgyzstan - Country Commercial Guide
Kyrgyz Republic - Market Entry Strategy
Last published date:

The most proven strategy for market entry remains the establishment of a joint-stock venture with a local partner who knows the Kyrgyz system. Many U.S. firms also avail themselves of the services of local distributors, business associations, and franchisees. U.S. companies have also had some success opening regional offices without local investment.

For most large-scale investments, a visit to the country and meetings with appropriate public officials are generally necessary but initial meetings usually can be completed in a virtual format. Reliable partners can be found, and there are several highly qualified consulting services meeting western standards available to U.S. businesses in the country, including the following:

National Investment Agency Under the Office of the President of the Kyrgyz Republic

In 2022, the “Procedure for Investor Complaints Consideration and Support” was approved by the Kyrgyz government. The new procedure is aimed at creating a mechanism for assisting and supporting investors in resolving disagreements arising in interaction with state and local government bodies. The main difference of the presented mechanism from the existing ones is the involvement of a coordinating third-party body in the resolution of complaints, analysis of possible economic and legal consequences, as well as the creation of a platform for further state support of investors. According to the National Agency for Investment in the Kyrgyz Republic, since the beginning of 2023, the Agency has processed 17 complaints, of which 10 have been resolved, thus saving investments of $80 million and 300 jobs.
