President Sooronbai Jeenbekov met on November 11 with young activists from all regions of the country and listened to successful projects implemented at their initiative. The meeting was held at Ala-Archa state residence on the occasion of the start of the Republican Congress of Youth of Kyrgyzstan, where he delivered an encouraging speech after the presentations. “You came to the congress with good ideas and projects to share your experience with like-minded people from all regions of the republic. You all pursue one goal together, and this is very gratifying. I support your initiatives and wish you great success in their implementation,” Jeenbekov began his welcome speech.

The President noted that it is young people who play a key role in the development of a strong state, and the authorities, on their part, should create conditions for the creative proposals of activists to be taken into account when making important governance decisions. “Statistics show that 28% of the population is young people aged 14 to 28 years. I believe that the government has enough opportunities to work closely with the younger generation and create chances to unleash their potential … Our compatriots graduate from leading universities in Europe, the USA, China, Turkey and other countries, then return to their homeland to use the acquired knowledge for the good of their people. Such aspirations should be appreciated and supported,” he said.

The Republican Congress of Youth of Kyrgyzstan was timed to the Day of Youth, which is celebrated annually on November 10. The congress gathered over 140 delegates.
