Free economic zone "Bishkek" working in the regime of tax and customs privileges will be interesting for entrepreneurs from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Low prices for electricity and rich water resources facilitate the process of production establishment.

"Kyrgyz side supports the idea of holding a Kyrgyz-Saudi investment forum," he said.

Minister E.P. Abdurakhman bin Abdul-Muhsin Al-Fadli, for his part, noted the great opportunities for further close cooperation between the two countries.

Abdulrahman bin Abdulmohsen Al-Fadley proposed to hold an exhibition on tourism and infrastructure of the Kyrgyz Republic in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in order to get acquainted with the country's tourism opportunities.
