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 system. Many U.S. firms also avail themselves of the services of local distributors and franchisees. Still, U.S. companies have had 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 can usually 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:
