All resources of the country's financial institutions are aimed at developing rural areas and supporting entrepreneurship in the regions. The more production in the country, the more jobs, and the less of our compatriots will leave their home in search of earnings,” President Soonbay Jeenbekov of the Kyrgyz Republic told Tuesday during a visit to the Viva Tex enterprise in Tokmok, Chuy oblast, which produces textiles, kabar.kg reports.

He also visited the Pasta Complex of the Kaz Grain LLC, which has just started its work.
Information on the activities of the company was provided by its head Sultan Imangaziev.
He told that in order to expand the production capacity, Kaz Grain LLC opened an additional workshop and the Pasta Complex line.

Jeenbekov once again stressed that entrepreneurs who open processing enterprises in the regions and provide local people with jobs should be the most respected and honored citizens in the country.
