The Kyrgyz Republic is a land-locked, lower-middle-income country in Central Asia that has abundant natural resources and potential for the expansion of its hydroelectricity production, agriculture sector, and tourism industry.

Since gaining independence in 1991, the Kyrgyz Republic has experienced political instability, with several political upheavals leading to the overthrow of presidents in 2005, 2010, and 2020. Since 2021, the political situation has stabilized, and the presidential form of government has been consolidated. The latest parliamentary election took place in November 2021.

To unlock strong, sustainable growth, reforms are needed to attract private investment, boost international trade, and promote sustainable energy. By focusing on these areas, the Kyrgyz Republic can build resilience to shocks, drive domestic growth, and reduce dependence on external factors, ultimately securing a brighter future for its citizens.
