Despite the persisting risks in the global economy, cooperation between our countries continues to strengthen,” Mamin said in his speech at the plenary session of the forum.
The Head of Government noted that the signing of the intergovernmental agreement on the establishment of a long-term strategic partnership for the development of projects in priority sectors of the economy in October of this year was a landmark event in bilateral relations. The document is aimed at implementing projects in the energy, agro-industrial, transport and logistics, pharmaceutical and financial sectors of the national economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan with a total investment of more than $6 billion.

Currently, Emirati companies are involved in the implementation of 11 large investment projects in Kazakhstan with a total value of over $3.5 billion. During his visit to Dubai, Prime Minister Askar Mamin got acquainted with the digital exhibition of JSC QazTrade Center for the Development of Trade Policy, visited the thematic pavilions of the EXPO 2020 Dubai exhibition, and held negotiations with the leadership of leading companies in the UAE.
