- It will be an international pavilion. We are appointing our ambassadors to seven countries now. They are Kazakh women who live in those countries, do business and can attract partners to present technologies and scientific innovations. These pavilions should facilitate business development, b2b meetings, negotiations, presentations of projects, and attract investments. We are aimed at attracting investments in our country.
International Women's Forum is aimed at demonstration of women’s achievements in environment protection, combating climate change, transition to green economy and implementation of social innovations. Kazakh female inventors received grants to launch their start-ups. They received $4,000 certificates.
