Kyrgyzstan plans to hand over to investors from Uzbekistan the former boarding house “Dilorom”, located in Issyk-Kul. This was reported by Spot with reference to the Kyrgyz edition of Tazabek.
The director of the State Property Management Agency under the Cabinet of Ministers Kanatbek Turgunbekov told the publication about this. He accompanied the Uzbek government delegation headed by Prime Minister Abdulla Aripov, who was in the neighboring country on a visit.
On August 15, officials from the two countries visited and inspected the Enesai boarding house, formerly called Dilorom. According to Turgunbekov, the boarding house, located on the shores of Lake Issyk-Kul, is planned to be handed over to investors from Uzbekistan.
“There is a question of attracting investments in our boarding houses, in Dilorom (Enesai), Golden Sands (Bosteri) and Rohat (Altyn-Zhai). That is, if they attract investments, they will manage,” the Kyrgyz official shared.
Kyrgyzstan expects to attract from $15 to 20 million foreign investments for each boarding house. It will also create additional jobs.
In February 2020, Uzbek companies opposed the sale of boarding houses in Kyrgyzstan. Their joint statement said that the neighboring country illegally expropriated these boarding houses in 2016.
It was also emphasized that the NBU was the owner and managed the Rohat-NBU boarding house, Asakabank – the Dilorom boarding house, Uzpromstroybank – the Buston boarding house, Tashkent Mechanical Plant – the Golden Sands boarding house.
