Responsible Winter Tourism in Kyrgyzstan

Examining the Winter Tourism value chain to generate productive employment in Kyrgyzstan

Short Description

The Swiss State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO) commissioned the International Labour Organization (ILO) to conduct a feasibility study to assess the market potential of initiating a future Responsible Winter Tourism Development Project in Kyrgyzstan. With this project SECO aims at enhancing employment opportunities and reducing poverty along the tourism value chain, while increasing the competitiveness of this industry in Kyrgyzstan. In this report, the findings of this assessment are discussed along with a set of systemic constraints to decent job creation and their potential market-driven solutions, which form the basis of a future project.
