The realisation of hydropower projects in Kyrgyzstan is reported to meet the energy needs of the region and, consequently, foster a conducive environment for sustainable development in Central Asian nations. This assertion was made by Akylbek Japarov, Chairman of Kyrgyzstan’s Cabinet of Ministers, during the Innoprom Kazakhstan 2023 International Industrial Exhibition held in Astana. Japarov expressed the intention to gradually develop environmentally sustainable hydropower plants within their territory, highlighting the exhibition as a significant platform for bolstering trade and economic ties.
He also underlined the significance of adopting all-encompassing policies to advance business and the economy.
“Along with other current issues, the world’s rapid depletion of natural resources makes it necessary for us to take more decisive action in order to overcome obstacles and benefit from the approaching “fourth industrial revolution,” Japarov pointed out.
According to him, the new prospects of industrial transformation offer great potential for improving the quality of humans’ lives and addressing many pressing issues, but they also bring about new challenges.
“Through the use of contemporary solutions, logistics will significantly advance. Overall, sensible resource use, including the use of natural resources, will increase. The economy will become more predictable and transparent, and it will develop quickly,” the chairman said.
