Chuy Region or Chui Region is the northernmost region (oblast) of the Kyrgyz Republic. It is bounded on the north by Kazakhstan, and clockwise, Issyk Kul Region, Naryn Region, Jalal-Abad Region and Talas Region. Its administrative center is Bishkek.
The region consists of 8 districts:
|Providing electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning||6401.5||7311.7|
|Water supply, cleaning, waste treatment and secondary raw materials||276.3||278.7|
|Funds of enterprises||3231.5||6,684.2|
|Funds of the population||3238.4||4584.5|
|Republican and local budget funds||483.3||652.1|
|Bank loans of the KR resident||332.4||1330.0|
|Foreign loan funds||6958.6||550.2|
|Foreign grant and humanitarian aid||250.5||363.6|
|Foreign direct investment funds||7851.8||6453.1|
The main east-west transportation axis of the region is the Taraz-Bishkek-Balykchy highway, running through most major cities of the region. This road’s section west of Bishkek is part of European route E40, known locally as Highway M-39 (based on the old USSR highway numbering scheme). The same numbers apply to the road that continues north-east from Bishkek toward Almaty, crossing the Chuy River and leaving the region for Kazakhstan at Korday border crossing.
The only railway in the region runs along the same Taraz-Bishkek-Balykchy route; it sees comparatively little use these days.
