Billionaire George Soros will visit Kyrgyzstan, the Executive director of "Soros - Kyrgyzstan" Fund Shamil Ibragimov said to 24.kg news agency.
According to him, the American financier will arrive in the country for one day (allegedly ob November 17) in the framework of a trip to the Eurasian region. He will examine the work of his foundation in the Kyrgyz Republic, as well as visit the AUCA.
"Billionaire invested in the construction of the campus for the school, which is being held for the second year. Now he wants to familiarize with the work. If time permits, he maybe will meet with the leadership of the country. We have already sent a letter to the president asking to confirm the possibility of meeting. But the answer hasn't followed. There is no exact program of the visit yet," Shamil Ibragimov said.
Last time George Soros visited Bishkek about 10 years ago, back in the presidency of Askar Akayev.
