Abstract
Kumtor gold mine is the largest enterprise, investor and taxpayer of the Kyrgyz Republic. Recently, Kumtor’s current and future contributions to the country’s social and economic development have become a subject of active discussions in the country and beyond. These discussions frequently lack empirical evidence and comprehensive information. This lecture will present the findings of an impartial, evidence-based and rigorous assessment of Kumtor’s impact on current and future economic and social development in the Kyrgyz Republic, designed to inform discussions on the country’s onward development and the development of the mining sector in particular. The research was conducted and will be published by the Institute of Public Policy and Administration at the University of Central Asia.
