Kyrgyzstan light industrial exports: 90% of light industry products manufactured in Kyrgyzstan are exported to Russia and Kazakhstan, according to the Chairman of the country’s Light Industry Association, Farhad Tologonov. Speaking at a round table discussion on Customs Union accession last week, he added that in the circumstances, it would be “senseless” for Kyrgyzstan to distance itself from Customs Union countries.
