"Osh is one of the largest and probably most active cities in all of the Ferghana Valley," Ferghana.Ru Chief Editor Daniil Kislov told his local colleagues in Osh last Thursday. "These factors determined our choice of Osh for the first office in Central Asia."
Ferghana.Ru Chief Editor and Central Asian Information Center Director Daniil Kislov and Alisher Saipov of the local Valley Media Group showed journalists the Partnership Treaty between the Russian and Kyrgyz companies and proceeded to speak of their plans for the future.
Establishment of the Intellectual Club was announced at the reception party that same day. Established on the premises of the Ferghana.Ru office, the Intellectual Club will include:
- exhibition hall;
- guest house; and
- information center for tourists.
Officials of the Russian General Consulate in Osh, representatives of municipal and regional administrations, officers of local divisions of secret services, and representatives of Osh-based international organizations attended the reception.
The guests welcomed Ferghana.Ru news agency and promised their assistance.
Ferghana.Ru office is already in business. The Intellectual Club and Ferghana.Ru-Osh Center of Information and Culture will open in November.
