Kyrgyzstan to receive 150,000 vaccine doses from China free of charge

China will provide 350 million yuan (about US$ 54 million) in grant financing to support the national economy.

On May 11, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kyrgyzstan Ruslan Kazakbaev had a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi during the working visit of the Kyrgyzstan delegation to China. The Chinese side informed of its intention to send the second batch of 150,000 vaccine doses as humanitarian aid to help the Republic combat the pandemic. The Government of China will provide about US$ 54 million in grant financing to support the economic potential of Kyrgyzstan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported on its website.

Along with humanitarian aid, China will send its specialists involved to implement the grant projects, which had been suspended during the coronavirus pandemic. Moreover, the People’s Republic of China offered assistance in modernising Kyrgyzstan’s food sector.

Wang Yi said China was interested in increasing the exports of eco-friendly agricultural products of Kyrgyzstan, including potato, bean, rapeseed and grapes. The parties emphasised that they would take effective measures to optimise the activities of the Torugart and Irkeshtam checkpoints to improve their throughput capacity.

As was reported, China sent the first batch of vaccines free of charge to Kyrgyzstan in the second decade of March.
