Kyrgyzstan Economic Forecast

Kyrgyzstan Economic Outlook

March 5, 2019

The economy appears to have begun the year on strong footing, on the heels of a slowdown in 2018. Robust mining output in the all-important Kumtor gold mine, coupled with upbeat manufacturing, buttressed economic activity in January. A drop-off in remittances growth at the end of last year, however, suggests that household spending got off to a slow start. Meanwhile, the external sector cooled in January on flat export growth. On politics, President Sooronbay Jeenbekov ratified a trade agreement between the Eurasian Economic Union and China on 25 February, laying the foundation for freer trade across the region over the long term.

Kyrgyzstan Economic Growth

Looking ahead, the economy is expected to speed up somewhat this year on the back of upward-trending gold prices and resilient external demand, which should fuel exports. On the downside, a slowdown in Russia will likely bruise remittances this year, which, coupled with raising inflation, could squeeze consumers. Our panel expects growth of 3.8% in 2019, down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast, and 4.3% in 2020.
