Kazakhstan is one of Kyrgyzstan's key partners in trade and investment. Last year, mutual trade turnover reached $1.5 billion. During the negotiations, we expressed our interest in increasing this figure to $2 billion. Overall, there are ample opportunities to significantly boost mutual trade turnover in a short time frame.
