BIRJAND - Kyrgyzstan’s Ambassador to Tehran Tordogan Sedigov has expressed readiness to develop cooperation with Iran in direct investment in main infrastructural projects.
The Kyrgyz envoy made the remarks in a meeting with provincial officials of South Khorasan province, noting that the investments can be in hydropower plants, roads, industrial and constructional fields, transformation industries, agriculture, health and tourism.
Sedigov also said that Kyrgyzstan’s officials will help absorb tourists and tradesmen and that Bishkek will provide Iranian businessmen with special visa facilitations.
To this end, Iranian civilians and trade delegations are provided with two-month-long visa between Mashhad and Bishkek, he added.
Authorities are coordinating to pave the ground for creating Tehran-Bishkek flights, he said, noting that Kyrgyz officials have conducted negotiations with IranAir Company.
According to the official, the Kyrgyz government plans to ease investments by foreigners.
25 years ago, Iran and Kyrgyzstan signed a memorandum of understanding to promote and support mutual investments; therefore, there is no obstacle in the way of pursuing trade cooperation, he argued.
He further invited tradesmen and representatives of South Khorasan province to visit Kyrgyzstan and take part in an investment seminar in Bishkek slated for December 8 and 9.
