Kyrgyzstan: Company Perspectives - An ITC Series on Non-Tariff Measures (en)

Inadequate export quality infrastructure in Kyrgyzstan is a key obstacle for Kyrgyz exporters.

A survey of over 300 companies on non-tariff measures (NTMs) found 58% of Kyrgyz exporters to be facing challenges with various regulatory and procedural obstacles to trade. Inadequate testing and certification facilities in the country is a major challenge making compliance with technical requirements difficult – especially those of the Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union.

The report recommends upgrading domestic infrastructure, enforcing quality compliance, streamlining procedures and diversifying export portfolio.
