Who We Are

The Association of Legal Entities "International Business Council" (IBC), founded in December 2000, has been contributing to the creation of an attractive investment climate and economic development in Kyrgyzstan for over 20 years.

We can proudly declare ourselves as one of the largest business associations in the country, which unites more than 120 members whose combined contribution is than 30% of the tax revenues of the Kyrgyz Republic.

There are two main areas of IBC activity:

(1) Promotion of favorable legislative initiatives for the business environment and investment climate, the expression of voice of business in B2G format and

(2) Creating a platform for cooperation, searching for investors, customers and partners for companies and entrepreneurs in B2B format.

In addition to business representatives, IBC unites development partners and diplomatic missions working in Kyrgyzstan to ensure their interaction and cooperation with the country's business community (B2D).
