Karakol is the administrative center of the Issyk-Kul region. It has a strong economic potential and is the fourth largest city in Kyrgyzstan. Karakol creates conditions for economic activity for residents of three surrounding districts; these are Jeti – Oguz, Tyup and Ak-Suu districts. Among the areas of activity – hotel and restaurant business, mountain tourism, beekeeping, animal husbandry, milk production, as well as the cultivation and processing of vegetables and fruits.

Training to improve the digital skills of the population in rural areas, this time is held on the topic “Electronic commerce”. In particular, the training participants learn in practice to take photos and videos (mobilography) of their products or services provided, edit, create a text description for them (copywriting) and place them on various electronic platforms.

More than 20 girls, women and young people took part in the training in Karakol on March 11 . During the training, the participants took pictures of their products in practice and posted photos on the Internet for presentation to their customers. Upon completion, all participants were awarded certificates stating that they had completed the training on “Electronic Commerce”.
