On February 14, 2017 NPM Resource Center at Naryn State University hosted General Director of Naryn Free Economic Zone Gulzat Abdrasulova, who gave a guest lecture on the theme "Problems of Youth Employment in the Kyrgyz Republic" for 30 participants, including students, professors, and CSO representatives. During the guest lecture, Gulzat Abdrasulova covered the following questions: the causes of youth unemployment in the Kyrgyz Republic; social support for unemployed youth; and shared how to promote employment and youth employment. The lecturer talked about current civil society employment issues in the Kyrgyz Republic and answered the participants’ questions. How does Social Protection work today? What does the state guarantee on insurance? What kind of support can be provided by social protection of youth unemployment?

Problems of youth employment and attracting qualified personnel to fill in the gap with human resources and its capacity building in Kyrgyzstan are interrelated and are among the problems, which directly affect the competitiveness and economic prosperity of civil society. These challenges have social and political, and real economic nature, as their solutions directly depend not only on their competitiveness and the pace of economic, technological, innovative development, but often their viability. The labor market of young people is a particular socio-demographic segment of the Kyrgyz economy with its own laws, which must be taken into account in the employment policies.
