Kazakhstan’s investment opportunities presented to leading Polish businessmen
Leading Polish businessmen were told about Kazakhstan’s investment opportunities, Khabar 24 informs.
Business-forum was held in Warsaw with the support of our Embassy, where members of the delegation made a presentation about Kazakhstan, measures of support and priority sectors for joint cooperation.
Members of the Polish Business Council - the club uniting successful businessmen, directors of the largest firms and investors, gathered in this hall. The heads of almost 40 companies, who are interested in the work with Kazakhstan, came to learn more about our country. Why is it profitable for the Poles to invest in Kazakhstan? The answer is easy, as it turned out: Kazakhstan is one of in the leading economies in the region that offers a range of preferences from the simplified visa system up to tax remissions, plus favourable opportunities for doing business. And all this is done for the purpose that the Polish businessmen come to Kazakhstan for a long time.
Birzhan Kaneshev, Deputy Chairman of the Board of KAZAKH INVEST:
- There is an opportunity to create joint productions and joint investments. At this stage, it is confirmed by the Polish investors. I think we will reach minimum 5-6 arrangements. On May, 15 an Investment International Forum will be held by our Prime Minister in Astana and we will indicate there concrete arrangements.
Jacek Shveizovsky, a businessman:
- I’m glad that Kazakhstan is opened for investment and development. I viewed the presentation with pleasure, learned about legal opportunities and business protection. This event was very interesting. Poland has the strong agriculture, chemistry and pharmaceutics – these are those sectors where we can cooperate closely. I’d like to note that many of my colleagues think seriously about investing in Kazakhstan.
The opportunity of Astana International Financial Center was presented in Poland too. Members of our delegation in detail told about the work of the Center and its advantages. Polish business circles consider the project of Astana International Financial Center to be perspective and already have offers.
Margulan Baimukhan, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Poland:
- There are specific proposals from the Polish party on participation in the investment economic forum within the limits of AEF. There is a concrete large company that has a good technological decision on electronic money, on blockchains. It is know-how that, I think, will be interesting for our segment of the economy. A goal is to attract investment in Kazakhstan, plus support of the Kazakhstan export which we have here. Import of Kazakhstan flax is of the great interest.
Businessmen decided not to postpone their further cooperation. B2B meetings were held right after the forum, where the Polish businessmen could familiarize with the projects of Turkestan and Northern-Kazakhstan regions in more details.
Alimzhan Akhmetov, a businessman:
- Our company is in Turkestan region. We have 1200 heads of cattle. Our cows are delivered from Canada and Europe. Now we want to develop and construct a milk processing plant. For this reason I’d like to find a partner for joint business.
Kazakhstan already actively cooperates with the sixth economy of the European Union in spheres of logistics and pharmaceutics. Mechanical engineering, agriculture and production of building materials are of mutual interest. Projects in these directions are already planned. Businessmen of Warsaw and Krakow now want to go with business trips to regions of Kazakhstan.
