Turkish and Kyrgyz business people should improve bilateral relations and turn opportunities into projects, the Turkish vice president said on Thursday.

The two countries should remove all obstacles and make new cooperations for the bilateral trade target of $1 billion, Fuat Oktay noted during the Turkey-Kyrgyzstan Business Forum in Istanbul.

The forum was organized by the Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK), the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) and the Turkish Exporters’ Assembly (TIM).

The bilateral trade was $424 million in 2018 and $326 million in the first nine months of this year, he reminded.
