Bishkek, Feb. 20, 2018 / Kabar /. Speaker of the Kyrgyz Parliament Dastanbek Zhumabekov within the framework of his working trip to Issyk-Kul oblast visited Ala-Too-Sut cooperative enterprise in Karakol, the press service of the Kyrgyz Parliament reported.
The cooperative enterprise has been opened in 2012. Since then, the enterprise collects dairy products from residents from more than 90 villages in four nearby districts. The enterprise produces various products, which are in great demand in the domestic market. The enterprise could reach new capacities, but this requires investments, Karakol Mayor Daniyar Arpachiev said.
Zhumabekov said that cooperative enterprises allow creating new jobs in the regions.
"Kyrgyzstan is an agrarian country, and we must focus on the development of agricultural products, which is in great demand. It is necessary to support the development of such cooperative enterprises at the highest level, to help them in their search for investment. The Issyk-Kul oblast should develop a brand of environmentally friendly products," the Speaker said.
