The information of the press service of the Bishkek Mayor's Office that Dyikan market does not pay the municipality 20 percent of the profits, as it should be under the contract, does not correspond to reality. The spokesman of the state enterprise "Kyrgyz Temir Joly" Erkin Kaimov told today at a press conference.
According to the agreement, the State Enterprise "Kyrgyz Temir Joly" was supposed to pay 20 percent of the market's profit to the city hall after it returns funds, invested in the development of the market.
"Thirty percent of the profit goes to the state, 14 percent - in the form of taxes, 56 percent comes to Kyrgyz Temir Joly SE," Erkin Kaimov said.
Dyikan market was opened in 2008 at the initiative of the Mayor's Office of Bishkek and government regulation to supply the vulnerable population groups with agricultural products at reasonable prices.
In 2013, the market was leased for 20 years. Laguna Group LLC won the tender.
