Agricultural Cooperation in The Kyrgyz Republic: Potential, Problems and Prospects
The article has been written in order to disclose the development potential of agricultural cooperation in the Kyrgyz Republic in the conditions of its integration into the unified food market of Eurasian Economic Union member states. Cooperation is considered an efficient economic mechanism of integration of small agricultural producers into national and global food value chains. Upon examination of works revealing the potential of cooperation in the development of value chains, analysis of the agrarian structure and evaluation of the potential held by member states for cooperation, the authors of the article have proposed measures for comprehensive development of agricultural cooperation in the Kyrgyz Republic. The article is based on the materials by international organizations, the National Committee of Statistics of the Kyrgyz Republic, the Eurasian Economic Commission and results of research conducted by separate authors. The article’s materials can be used to generalize the international practice of studying the role of cooperation in the development of food value chains and to improve institutional conditions and government policy of supporting cooperation in the Kyrgyz Republic. They are also of interest for a broad group of researchers in the field of agricultural cooperation.
