Contractors commissioned to start work on hydropower plants in Kyrgyzstan

Belarusian builders were contracted last weeks to build hydropower plants in Kyrgyzstan under the terms of an agreement signed between Belarus and Kyrgyzstan.

The agreement signed by Mikhail Myasnikovich, the prime minister of Belarus, and Djoomart Otorbaev, the prime minister of Kyrgyzstan.

The leaders also held discussions on a leasing agreement for the supply of Belarusian equipment to Kyrgyzstan. Issues of bilateral cooperation were also discussed at the meeting, which was held prior to the CIS heads of government council.

Myasnikovich said the two countries would be implementing a lot of joint projects.

"I think that we should first of all talk about infrastructure projects that can generate new projects," Myasnikovich said.

The two leaders also discussed Kyrgyzstan's recent announcement that it has intentions to join the Eurasian Economic Union.
