Kazakhstan -Switzerland: Investment cooperation
The prospects of investment cooperation between Kazakhstan and Switzerland were discussed in Astana. Foreign businessmen led by Johann Schneider-Ammann expressed interest in implementing joint projects in Kazakhstan. They are planning to invest in the manufacturing sector in Kazakhstan, particularly in the One Belt One Road initiative projects. There are successful joint-projects with Swiss companies in Kazakhstan in industries such as machine-building, construction, agro-industrial complex and mining.
JOHANN SCHNEIDER-AMMANN, HEAD, SWISS DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMIC AFFAIRS, EDUCATION AND RESEARCH:
- Kazakhstan is in an upswing situation, it’s my understanding. I came to Kazakhstan in my function 5 years ago. I felt that there was a changing mind and a forward-oriented progress coming up this time. This time from the very first moment I thought that there is an entrepreneurial spirit in this country.
