Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia: Direct Relations with Regions Are Important to Us
Akim of the Pavlodar region Bulat Bakauov, who is on a working trip to Moscow, met with Vice President of the Russian CCI Dmitry Kurochkin.
The meeting was held in the Congress Center of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia, where the business forum “Investment Day Pavlodar in Moscow” was held. Akim of Pavlodar region emphasized that today Russia is one of the region’s main economic partners, and stated its readiness to develop bilateral cooperation.
At the site of the Russian CCI, we would like to find new ties and new opportunities for bilateral investment, said Bulat Bakauov. It is important for us to show Russian businessmen what free niches there are in our region and in what areas we are ready to work with them.
Dmitry Kurochkin emphasized that entrepreneurs who are willing to invest money and are looking for projects for their investments are constantly turning to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation and its branches. At the same time, potential investors do not always have information about the possibilities of the regions of Kazakhstan.
Today we do not have a representative office in Kazakhstan, but we compensate for this with a high level of interaction with the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs and individual Kazakhstani enterprises, said the CCI Vice President. However, direct ties with the regions of Kazakhstan are important to us. We have experience working with investors and a readymade infrastructure, the work system is built at all levels, including the municipal one. We cooperate with a large number of companies, not only financial, but also mining and metallurgical, as well as industry associations.
Bulat Bakauov and Dmitry Kurochkin also discussed bilateral participation in the upcoming KazakhRussian crossborder cooperation forum, which will be held in November this year in Omsk with the participation of the heads of two states.
