50 million soms are required for setting up a Kyrgyz Tourism state enterprise at initial stage, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
After transfer of the state-run recreational and related objects to Kyrgyz Tourism, it could begin its activities on supporting basis.
After launching of Kyrgyz Tourism SE, a number of state resorts will be transferred to the enterprise, and in the future, it will become a limited liability company or a joint-stock company with 100% shares of the state.
On Nov 27, MP Bahadir Suleimanov doubted that the tourism and culture should be combined in one ministry, because tourism is more of an economic sector, not cultural. He called on the prime minister to immediately consider either creation of an agency or separate Ministry of Tourism.
As per tourism in Kyrgyzstan, the Lonely Planet named the country #5 best country to travel to in 2019.
According to the Lonely Planet, Kyrgyzstan is “a nation defined by its natural beauty. Joyously unspoilt mountainscapes, stark craggy ridges and rolling jailoos (summer pastures) are brought to life by semi-nomadic, yurt-dwelling shepherds.”
