SLAWOMIR ZAKSHEVSKI, FORMER HEAD OF POLISH PRIVATIZATION AGENCY:
- I remember the visit of President Nursultan Nazarbayev to Poland very well. More than one thousand business representatives gathered at the business forum. This was a powerful impetus to establishing business contacts. I want to note that at present, the Poles have a visa-free entry to Kazakhstan. A direct flight between Warsaw and Astana was launched in May, this is also very important. As for business, our Polish entrepreneurs are interested in cooperation, especially in agriculture.
Latvia and Kazakhstan have established close friendly relations, constructive and open dialogue at all levels over the years of Kazakhstan’s independence. There is also a great potential in the joint development of Eurasian transit traffic and in expanding economic partnership.
ULDIS AUGULIS, LATVIAN TRANSPORT MINISTER:
- First of all, I must say that this year was productive in terms of cooperation with Kazakhstan. I also visited EXPO in Kazakhstan. There was a transport week of Latvia, where we met with businessmen from Kazakhstan. Much has been done regarding the joint rail links. I think that our joint cooperation is advancing every year.
