More than 30 agreements worth over two billion dollars were signed in Almaty. These are the results of Almaty Investment Forum 2019, a correspondent of Khabar 24 reports.
The event was attended by leaders of international business, heads of multinational companies, government representatives – in all more than 500 delegates from 20 countries. Addressing the guests, Akim of the city Bakytzhan Sagintayev announced a global reform of the metropolis. By 2050, Almaty should enter one of the top 100 cities in the world. Naturally, in order to achieve such a high level, it is necessary to develop export production, modernize logistics and actively develop digital technologies. In particular, it is planned to continue the process of agglomeration and accession of new territories. All this requires investment. Businessmen understand that this is a good time to enter an emerging market.
Bruno Martorano, an investor:
- One of the directions of our business is to support ecotourism. And Almaty is perfect place. This is as well as the diverse nature, magnificent, unique mountains that surround the city. And here, believe me, there is something to develop. Tourists love to travel the world and visit beautiful places. And more and more there are those who do not go to local pubs, bars and restaurants. They go to nature. And this niche is to be developed now.
