"Investor Day" of the International finance center Astana was held in London. The forum was attended by heads of major British and international investment companies. They got acquainted with the strategic challenges facing the center "Astana".

 

DANIEL CORRIGAN, CHAIR, RUSSIA, CIS&MONGOLIA GROUP AT THE CITY UK:

We recently visited Astana. We went over there for a week along with many other people from the City UK to talk about the development of the ambitious but realizable plan. And today it was a great follow-up be the people of the Embassy.

 

According to British law firm partner Simon Cox, the application of English law in the activities of the IFC "Astana" as well as English as a working language of the center will make Kazakhstan the most attractive region for investors.

 

SIMON COX, NORTON ROSE FULBRIGHT PARTNER:

I think it’s a very exciting opportunity for London and Astana to work together. I think there is a long tradition of this cooperation. I am attending some meetings in Astana next month on developing corporate governance.

 

Kazakhstan's Ambassador to the United Kingdom Erzhan Kazykhanov addressed the representatives of the British and international business circles noting that the center will create great opportunities for Kazakhstani companies to enter the international markets and for foreign companies to gain access to the markets of Kazakhstan. The governor of IFC "Astana" Kairat Kelimbetov told the participants about the strategic challenges facing the center. He noted that its creation is part of the reforms to diversify Kazakhstan’s economy.

 

KAIRAT KELIMBETOV, GOVERNOR OF ASTANA INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL CENTRE (AIFC):

There is a strong interest among companies in London to privatization processes ongoing in Kazakhstan. The meeting was held between representatives of Samruk Kazyna and national holdings that will be privatized in the coming years.
