Kassym-Jomart Tokayev announced that in 15 years the volume of Swiss investment in Kazakhstan exceeded $24 billion, Kazpravda.kz correspondent reports.
“Switzerland is known as a country with a powerful innovative industry and developed agriculture, as one of the main financial and banking centers in the world. In turn, Kazakhstan stands out for its sustainable economic growth and the region’s best investment climate. Kazakhstan is 25th in the Doing Business ranking,” Tokayev said.
Switzerland is the third largest investor in our economy and is among the top ten largest trading partners of Kazakhstan. In 15 years, the volume of Swiss investment exceeded $ 24 billion.
“During the talks, I expressed gratitude to the Swiss side for assistance in the transboundary water use and water diplomacy in Central Asia. I offered our partners the prospect of coordinating efforts in this area taking into account similar initiatives of Kazakhstan. We agreed with President Maurer that the main element of Kazakh-Swiss partnership is economic,” Tokayev concluded.
