President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbay Jeenbekov took part today in the Kyrgyz-Turkish business forum in Bishkek.

The head of state noted that Kyrgyzstan and Turkey have developed particularly trusting relationships, as a result of which Kyrgyz-Turkish trade and economic relations are developing at a dynamic pace, his press service said.

Jeenbekov stressed that the parties intend to increase trade between the countries from USD 400 million up to USD 1 billion.
