Focus on Kazakhstan

PAIiIZ and Ministry of Development open the doors for Polish business in Kazakhstan by presenting the potential of Polish companies during the 9th Astana Economic Forum. Kazakhstan is increasingly popular for foreign companies as next year it will host the EXPO2017 World Exhibition in Astana. Poland has just announced the access to this prestigious event.

For the European Union, Kazakhstan is the top important business partner from Central Asia regarding investments and trade. EU-Kazakhstan Enhanced Partnership and Cooperation Agreement was signed in January 2015. It is worth to stress that Kazakhstan is the first country of the Central Asia region that signed such memorandum.  Also for the Polish government Kazakhstan is one of the most significant economic partners.  The country has been added to the list of the five top important business destinations for Polish companies and it was covered by three promotion programmes facilitating trade exchange and investments of such sectors as: construction, machinery, mining and defence. Therefore, the governmental mission of Polish business to Astana was expected to shape the bilateral cooperation for a long time and open the doors  wider for Polish business not only in Kazakhstan but also in the whole Central Asia Region.
