He is ever aspired for self-perfection, which stimulated me to participate in numerous international programs.

His Master study helped me very much in developing his PhD thesis, but participation at the CARTI (Central Asian Research and Training Initiative) Program with research at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA under the mentorship of Professor Martin Spechler and field research in Kyrgyzstan was crucial in explaining the problems of economic development of Kyrgyzstan within his PhD thesis. In 2015 he is defended my Economic Policies of Kyrgyzstan, 1991-2010: experience and the outcomes PhD thesis and consequently published his monograph in 2016. Since 2016 he is started his Doctoral research on “Institutional Transformation in Kyrgyzstan under the Eurasian Economic Union Integration”.
