AKIPRESS.COM - Kazakh Prime Minister Askar Mamin met with UK Minister of State for Europe and the Americas of British Foreign & Commonwealth Office Alan Duncan.
They considered bilateral trade, economic and investment cooperation.
Duncan said Kazakhstan has all the opportunities for doing business and the necessary conditions have been created to attract foreign investments. Against the background of the UK’s exit from the European Union, Duncan assured that the continuity of key provisions in trade and economic relations between Kazakhstan and the United Kingdom would be ensured.
“Kazakhstan and the UK have a huge potential for building up bilateral cooperation that needs to be used effectively,” said Prime Minister Mamin.
More than 850 legal entities, branches and representative offices with British participation are registered in Kazakhstan, among them are Royal Dutch Shell, Ernst & Young and others. To further increase the interaction of business structures, the next Kazakh-British investment forum will be held in London in October 2019, which will attract new interested representatives of large British businesses.
