The parties also noted the importance of establishing long-term relations in forming a positive investment climate in the republic.

NURSULTAN NAZARBAYEV, PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 - I sincerely welcome you. We welcome your decision to work in Kazakhstan at the AIFC. You certainly know that we are creating favorable conditions for those who will work there. Your company’s decision to work with us is a good incentive for all other companies, I think. We hope that those who work with you in America and in Europe are interested in the Kazakh financial center.

ADENA FRIEDMAN, PRESIDENT, NASDAQ:

 - We are extremely impressed with what you are creating with the AIFC and the exchange you are launching here. I think you have been extremely thoughtful and very thorough in how you are setting up, as you said, the rule of law, the roles of engagement and the general approach to business within the AIFC. And I think we applaud you with that.
