The chief specialist of the Tourism Development Support Fund of the Kyrgyz Republic Suran Rabayev today delivered a speech at the seminar "Training and Advanced Training of Specialists in the Halal-Industry of the Kyrgyz Republic on International Standards oic/smiic".
The seminar is organized by the Halal-Industry Development Centre of the Ministry of Economy and Commerce of the Kyrgyz Republic. In 2022, a memorandum of cooperation was signed between this Centre and our Fund, and we are trying to contribute to the realization of the huge potential of halal (adal) tourism in our country.
The topic of my speech was the prospects of halal tourism promotion in the Kyrgyz Republic, - said Suran Rabayev. - Currently, Muslim tourists from many countries are looking for directions that would suit their needs in terms of food, clothing and rituals. Our Republic is able to meet these needs. But this requires a comprehensive approach. It is necessary to improve the skills of relevant specialists and in parallel actively promote the tourist potential of the Kyrgyz Republic abroad".
"Over the past year, our Fund organized the participation of domestic delegations in 11 major international tourism exhibitions. Some of them are in countries where the majority of the population is Muslim. We are sure that this will contribute, among other things, to increasing the flow of Muslim tourists to Kyrgyzstan," he said.
