Visit of Dutch agricultural companies to Kyrgyzstan in October 2019

The Netherlands Embassy in Kazakhstan, which is also accredited to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, would like to announce its plans to organize follow-up visits to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in the fall of 2019 and spring of 2020, respectively.

A follow-up visit of Dutch agricultural companies to Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) will tentatively take place in week 42 (14-16 October 2019).

Our first visit to Bishkek, which resulted in some projects of Dutch companies, took place in September 2014. Therefore, we believe that it is now a good time to organize a second visit to Bishkek in order to revive old and establish new contacts with potential Kyrgyz business partners.

Participation in the visit is open to all Dutch companies active in the agricultural sector.

If you are interested in the visit to Kyrgyzstan, please express your interest by sending an email to before Monday, 1 July 2019. Please also feel free to forward this message to your partners and contacts within your network who might be interested in visiting Kyrgyzstan. A Go/No-Go decision will be made based on the number of received expressions of interest.
