KAZAKHSTAN, SINGAPORE STRENGTHEN TIES
Five hundred billion dollars may come as investment to Central Asia from the Asia-Pacific region until 2030. This was stated by the head of the Singapore delegation at a business forum in Almaty. In recent years, the members of the Association of SouthEast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have been paying great attention to strengthening economic cooperation with Kazakhstan. After opening their enterprises in Almaty, businessmen from Singapore are planning to enter not only the markets of Central Asia, but the entire Eurasian Economic Union with a population of one hundred and eighty million people. Kazakhstan benefits enormously from a business partnership with Singapore. It opens an access to a market of six hundred million people. The representatives of the Asia-Pacific Chamber of Commerce and Investment signed a strategic agreement with Socio-Entrepreneurial Corporations (SEC) of Almaty.
OLZHAS ZHYENKULOV, PRESIDENT, KAPIC:
- If they need to connect with the members of the Socio-Entrepreneurial Corporations, and need support from a single window to realize a business idea, they can simply find the necessary information through our registrar. If they need a business partner who has a distribution network in Kazakhstan, they can easily find trusted people on our platform.
