Chairman of the Senate Committee on Economic Policy, Innovative Development and Entrepreneurship Suindik Aldashev met with deputies of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea, who are members of the friendship group with Kazakhstan.
In his welcoming speech, the senator noted that Korea is one of the key political and economic partners of Kazakhstan in the Asia-Pacific region. Cooperation between our countries in the trade, economic and investment spheres is developing rapidly and has reached record levels. At the same time, the senator spoke about the main structural economic reforms in the country, noting that the ongoing changes open up new opportunities for trade, economic and investment cooperation.
«The main emphasis will be on the development of the manufacturing sector. It is planned to implement large projects in such areas as deep metal processing, petrochemicals, heavy engineering, and uranium enrichment. To this end, foreign and domestic investors will be exempt from taxes and other mandatory payments for the first three years. This is a fundamental point that should give a serious impetus to the manufacturing industry. Much attention is paid to the development of the agro-industrial complex. Increased attention is paid to issues of digitalization and innovation», - said Suindik Aldashev.
The meeting participants also discussed issues of cooperation in the field of information technology, digitalization, promoting a green economy, combating cybercrime, mechanical engineering, mining and nuclear energy.
At the end of the event, delegates from Korea noted that they highly appreciate cooperation with Kazakhstan, and are also ready to actively contribute to strengthening bilateral relations.
