Prospective Investment: Kazakhstan's efforts to successfully conquer the world financial market

This coming summer, Kazakhstan will officially launch its Astana International Financial Center (AIFC). In fact, the center has been operating since January 1, and already has some achievements to boast. The project that seemed, at first, utopian, became real, and now there is no doubt that Astana can really become the new Hong Kong or London.

Kyrgyzstan will have to give its lands to China

Now Kyrgyzstan's foreign debt is about $4.2 billion, $2.5 of which, were accrued during the presidency of former presidents Askar Akayev and Kurmanbek Bakiyev. The remaining amount of loans was accrued during the presidency of Almazbek Atambayev. In fact, during his term, the Chinese gave us a loan and themselves implemented the projects under it. Is it normal? This money was given to us by a commercial bank, and not an international organization, which means that this loan will never be debited to us. I'm afraid that Kyrgyzstan will still have to give up land, the thermal power station or large deposits to pay off debts.
