Dear partners!

We are glad to welcome you on the page of the Kyrgyz Software and Services Developers Association. We have been promoting information technology in our country for many years. In 2008, a number of Kyrgyz IT companies merged into the Association in order to promote their activities and protect the interests of the IT sector. After that, the idea of ​​creating the High Technologies Park (HTP) emerged as a virtual environment of a special legal regime in which companies could work openly and transparently and grow into a full-fledged sector of the economy.

The law on the “High Technology Park of Kyrgyzstan” was signed by the President of the Kyrgyz Republic in 2011. Currently, the turnover of IT companies - HTP residents is more than 500 million soms. This is a legal business area that pays taxes and officially operates its software development activities, including analysis, design and programming of information systems, ready for implementation, export of information technologies and software, and creation and provision of services of interactive service centers. About 80% of our products are exported to Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, USA, Canada, Japan and European countries. India and African countries are also among our customers. Our mission is “Live in Kyrgyzstan - Work with the World!”

We strive for global goals and invite all interested parties to cooperate with us for the benefit of IT field development in the country!

Sincerely,
Azis Abakirov
KSSDA Chairman
Founder of High-Tech Park
