The U.S. backed Kyrgyzstan's WTO accession, but the economy of that country remains stalled. What can be done to energize it, and what is the new government doing?  Kyrgyzstan's vice-prime will draw on his experience in politics, business, and at EBRD to elucidate these timely issues.

The Forum is preceded by a reception and refreshments at 5 p.m. The program itself will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. and conclude at 7:00 p.m.
