Friday, 08 November 2019, 09:53:24

Ministry of Trade and Integration conducted an analysis of changes in the trade between Kazakhstan and Russia, starting with the first Forum of Interregional Cooperation between Kazakhstan and Russia held in 2003 in Omsk.

Since 2005, the Forum of Interregional Cooperation between Kazakhstan and Russia has been held alternately in Russian and Kazakhstani cities: Chelyabinsk, Uralsk, Novosibirsk, Aktobe, Orenburg, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Astrakhan, Pavlodar, Yekaterinburg, Atyrau, Sochi, Astana, Chelyabinsk, Petropavlovsk.

As Bakhyt Sultanov noted, meeting with the journalists on the sidelines of the Forum, commodity circulation has been growing all these years.

Since the first Forum of Interregional Cooperation in 2003 (over 15 years), trade between our countries has grown 3.5 times (2003 — $5,245.5 million, 2018 — $18,517.3 million), including our supplies to Russia grew 2.6 times ($1,967.7 million — $5,279.9 million).

Practical solutions, real help and concrete suggestions — this is what happens on the site of the Business Forum, where people who want to work meet. This is why the Forum is organized. Therefore, speaking with reporters today, Bakhyt Sultanov emphasized the importance of the networking platform of the Forum, noting that, starting from the first Forum, a lot of decisions have been reached, more than 100 different agreements. Basically, of course, this is an agreement between enterprises — this is the task of interregional cooperation.

“Today, in parallel with the interregional forum at the level of heads of state, we are also holding a business forum where our enterprises are represented. There are already certain results. A number of agreements are concluded today for approximately $40 million. But this is only the beginning. We hope that thanks to these business forums, entrepreneurs will have additional opportunities,” said Minister Sultanov.

In addition, speaking about the general export of national commodity producers in general, the Minister of Trade spoke about the major results of the trip to China, where he visited with the Kazakh delegation.
