Stunning mountainscapes, dramatic peaks, glistening glaciers and alpine lakes make up this Central Asian country. And, it’s that same rugged natural beauty and the magnificent Tien Shan mountain range that has helped preserve the country’s rich, multicultural heritage and semi-nomadic traditions. Kyrgyzstan sits at the crossroads of several great civilizations and has played a significant role in the Silk Road and other cultural routes. The country has undergone the inhabitance of many tribes and clans, as well as foreign rule – and despite this, it has maintained is customs and traditions. Most of Kyrgyzstan was annexed to Russia in 1876. It became a Soviet republic in 1936 and, in 1991, gained independence after the dismantling of the Soviet Union. Kyrgyzstan’s economy is dependent on the agricultural production of cotton, tobacco, wool, meat and other products as well as mineral extraction. Cotton and tobacco are the only agricultural exports, while gold, mercury uranium and natural gas account for most mineral exports. Foreign investment will greatly improve Kyrgyzstan’s economy and while some British companies already have a presence in the country, recent years have given way to more opportunities for UK businesses and the demand for more widespread courier services to Kyrgyzstan.
While the soaring mountain ranges make the country geographically isolated, they are the same trait that has earned the country the moniker of “Switzerland of Central Asia.” The landlocked country shares borders with Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and China. In the past, political instability, underdeveloped infrastructure and a lack of air transportation has inhibited many people from visiting the charming nation. That has been changing though, as more people see the beautiful country as a serene holiday destination and culturally enriching experience with bustling city centres, beach resorts and rural mountain treks. Travel throughout, and consequently, delivery in Kyrgyzstan can be difficult. Its alpine topography has made it challenging to travel to remote regions and higher altitudes. However, a major roadway that connects the north and southwest from Bishkek to Osh was recently completed and has improved travel, communication and parcel courier to Kyrgyzstan. In Bishkek, the most populous city, the postal code ranges from 720000-720085.
The country’s stunning natural beauty and enticing culture are helping it gain world-wide interest. Kyrgyzstan still has some room for improvement, specifically in eliminating corruption, improving administrative transparency and attracting foreign aid and investment. However, improved relations with the UK and the increased opportunities for British investment have helped expedite and lower courier costs to Kyrgyzstan.
