Kyrgyzstan and China will build a road connecting the southern bank of Lake Issyk-Kul in Northern Kyrgyzstan and the Aksu district of China's Sinkiang-Uigur region. Zhaiman Kasymbekov, chief of "China has set up a management office and is prepared to appropriate $15 million for the project," he said.
The road "will make it possible for the flow of Chinese tourists to increase and promote trade between the two countries," Kasymbekov said.
An agreement on construction of the road may be signed in 2003, Kasymbekov said. Kyrgyzstan has not, however, considered its financing as yet, he said.
