Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagitayev took part today in the Kazakh-Serbian Business Forum in Astana.

B.Sagintayev noted in his welcoming remarks fruitfulness of the year 2016 in terms of Kazakh-Serbian bilateral cooperation. Visit of the President N.Nazarbayev in Belgrade in August this year has determined such main priorities for the development of bilateral relations as agriculture, construction, food industry, transport, tourism, and SME.

The Prime Minister noted that due to the implementation of large infrastructure projects within Nurly Zhol state program, the country has a wide transit potential, which may attract the Serbian business representatives. Kazakhstan is located in the EAEU free trade zone, which provides opportunities of entering the big market. There are free economic and industrial zones in the country, which provide favorable conditions for doing business. In addition, development of infrastructure, cooperation in agriculture, construction, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical engineering can be an excellent base for expanding bilateral cooperation.

Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic noted in turn that Serbia attaches great importance to developing relations with Kazakhstan and believes that intergovernmental relations may be accompanied by a more intensive cooperation in various fields, especially in economy.

Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev and Serbian Prime Minister A.Vucic held today bilateral talks, took part in Kazakh-Serbian Business Forum, and visited the EXPO 2017 exhibition center and the Forte Bank new office built by the Serbian construction companies.

Following the meetings, the sides signed the Kazakh-Serbian Cooperation Roadmap, Protocol of Intentions between the Astana akimat and Belgrade City Hall, and the Memorandum of Understanding on Air Communication between the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Republic of Serbia.
