The Kyrgyzan mining industry has seen its share of economic growth in recent years, and now there is talk of a new boom.
Kyrgyzan Mining Industry Association (KMIA) chairman and former President Akhmad Kiprusov told MTV News that the country is currently experiencing a boom in the mining sector.
“The mining industry in Kyrgizstan is booming,” Kiprosov said.
“There are almost 300 mines in the country, and more than 1,000 mines have been built in recent times.”
Kiprosavlensky said there is a growing interest in mining in the Kyrgystans, but not in the same way as in other countries.
“Kyrgiz is a country that is quite rural,” he said.
“It’s a country of people who are not very interested in mining, because of the land shortage, and they have no money for a mining job.
But there are people who have invested in the mines, and that has created a lot of employment for the people who want to work in the mine.”KMia has been a major player in the global mining industry for years, with more than 40 mines operating in the region.
Kiprusova said that Kyrgystan is not the only country to experience an increase in mining activity.
“We are also seeing a lot in other parts of the world like Canada and South Africa,” KIPROSOV said.
The mining boom is a sign of a possible economic turnaround in Kyrgiistan, which is struggling to compete with China for mining investment.
In recent years the country has been suffering from a lack of resources and a weak currency.
“I believe that the Kyrgis have a very good chance to become the next Kyrgyzes and to become a mining powerhouse,” Kirov said.
Kirov was speaking to MTV News on his birthday, and he plans to spend the rest of the day working at a mining operation in Kyrgz.
