Helsinki : Businessmen from Kazakhstan and Finland signed contracts worth more than $600 million, as part of the official visit of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev to the northern European country.
“This is my second visit to the Republic of Finland over the period of our independence and our fourth high-level meeting with the President of the country,” said Nazarbayev following the talks.
“Our talks today focused on international policy, namely on our region and the situation in Europe where the Europe-Asia forum will be held tomorrow. We share a common view on this issue. Indeed, there are neither political nor economic problems between our countries,” he said.
“I have arrived here to give a new impulse to the economic relations between our counties. Yesterday, I met with captains of Finnish business and saw their interest in working with us. Tens of contracts worth over $600mn have been signed by our businessmen. We may cooperate in ore-mining industry, chemistry, engineering, agriculture and high technologies sectors,” he added.
