Ferghana.Ru news agency and Central Asian Information Center opened their office at 44, Kurmanjan Datka Street, Osh, Kyrgyzstan on September 28.

"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.
