Chinese refinery becomes Kyrgyzstan's second largest taxpayer

Two hours away from the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek is China's largest investment project in Kyrgyzstan -- the Zhongda China Petrol Company. The refinery was born from 500 million U.S. dollars' worth of backing from a Chinese company. The company paid the Kyrgyz government 43 million U.S. dollars last year, making it the country's second largest taxpayer.
