Deadline extended for Kyrgyz convention centre

The government of Kyrgyzstan has extended the deadline to tender for a convention centre PPP.

The Agency for the Promotion of Investment, as part of the Ministry of Economy, will be accepting proposals until 15 December to renovate the Issyk-Kul complex in Bishkek, following the expiration of the previous deadline on 6 November

A partner will finance and conduct works to renovate the centre, consisting of an eight-storey building, a 12,900sq m block among other components, and deliver additional buildings to host international delegations and government events.

The authority will negotiate the length of the concession with the winner, allowing a maximum term of 40 years.
