In particolare, si sono tenuti incontri con i rappresentanti di queste città e con i responsabili delle aziende locali, durante i quali sono state presentate informazioni dettagliate sul potenziale turistico e di investimento del Kazakhstan, sulle opportunità di realizzazione di progetti commerciali congiunti. È stata sottolineata l’importanza dell’espansione dell’interazione in settori quali l’agricoltura, l’industria di trasformazione alimentare, il commercio, gli investimenti e il turismo.

Milano, 26 aprile 2023 – Si è svolto oggi a Milano il business forum kazako-italiano Kazakhstan – Il Paese delle grandi opportunità, organizzato da Kazakh Invest, dall’Ambasciata del Kazakhstan in Italia e dalla Camera di Commercio Italo Kazaka. Vi hanno partecipato oltre 100 aziende italiane, in rappresentanza di settori quali l’agroindustria, l’industria leggera, la logistica, il turismo, l’ingegneria meccanica, l’energia, ecc.

La parte kazaka era rappresentata dalla direzione delle società nazionali “Kazakh Invest” , “Baiterek” , “Kazpost”, da rappresentanti di enti statali e di società private.

La sede del forum non è casuale. Milano è il capoluogo della regione Lombardia, leader dell’imprenditoria italiana, la regione più industrializzata e ricca d’Italia. Qui hanno sede molte aziende italiane e internazionali. La Lombardia è attraente non solo per gli affari, ma anche per i turisti di tutto il mondo.

Intervenendo all’apertura del business forum, l’Ambasciatore kazako in Italia Yerbolat Sembayev ha sottolineato l’elevata dinamica di sviluppo delle relazioni commerciali e di investimento tra i due Paesi. Secondo Sembayev, l’Italia è uno dei principali partner commerciali del Kazakhstan nel mondo.

“Oggi l’Italia è il principale partner commerciale del nostro Paese in Europa e il terzo nel mondo. La nostra cooperazione reciprocamente vantaggiosa è costruita nel quadro dell’Accordo di partenariato strategico tra i nostri Paesi”, ha sottolineato Yerbolat Sembayev.

Il diplomatico kazako parla dei progetti di investimento in corso tra i due paesi.

“Da oggi è stata avviata l’attività di assemblaggio di trattori agricoli e mietitrebbie “Deutz-Fahr” con il marchio “Made in Kazakhstan jointly with Italy”, lanciata da “Agromash Holding KZ” insieme alla holding multinazionale italiana “SDF Group”. Inoltre, l’azienda italiana PetrolValves, impegnata nella produzione e manutenzione di valvole, e il gruppo kazako “Merlion Development Group” hanno creato una joint venture “PetrolValves Kazakhstan” e quest’anno hanno già messo in funzione un impianto per la produzione di valvole”, ha osservato Yerbolat Sembayev.

Il Presidente del Consiglio di Amministrazione di “Kazakh Invest” Meirzhan Yussupov ha presentato ai partecipanti al forum informazioni dettagliate sul Kazakhstan, facendo conoscere loro il potenziale di investimento del nostro Paese, i suoi vantaggi, e ha parlato delle condizioni create per gli investitori e delle misure di sostegno da parte dello Stato.

“L’Italia rimane il terzo partner commerciale strategico del Kazakhstan dopo Russia e Cina, con una quota di oltre l’11,1% sul volume totale del fatturato del commercio estero. Oggi più di 260 imprese a capitale italiano operano con successo nel Paese, il che testimonia l’alta fiducia dell’imprenditoria italiana nel nostro Paese”, ha dichiarato Meirzhan Yussupov.

A loro volta, i rappresentanti della parte italiana hanno rilevato l’elevato potenziale di cooperazione commerciale e di investimento tra i due Paesi. Secondo il Presidente della Commissione Giustizia della Camera dei Deputati del Parlamento italiano, Ciro Maschio, il Kazakhstan è un importante partner commerciale ed economico del Paese. Entrambe le parti hanno le carte in regola per espandere la cooperazione bilaterale.

Il rappresentante plenipotenziario del Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale italiano Gianluca Grandi, il presidente della Commissione Bilancio della Regione Lombardia Davide Caparini, il presidente della Camera di Commercio italo-kazaka Paolo Girelli, il presidente dell’Associazione per il Commercio Italo-Kazaka Marco Beretta e altri hanno condiviso le loro opinioni sull’espansione delle relazioni commerciali e di investimento italo-kazake.

Is now the time to invest in Kazakhstan?

Executive Summary

Now is the Time to Invest in Kazakhstan

Leading global investors and businesses view Kazakhstan as increasingly investable – as it spreads its wings economically at the same time as entering a new phase of its political development. While opportunities continue to abound in the country’s renowned oil, gas and minerals sectors, there is also a growing service economy, along with innovative science and technology-based start-ups and an expanding role as a regional centre for aviation, education and financial services. While facing similar headwinds to many countries globally – chiefly inflation – the economy is tipped for strong growth and has a young, well-educated population. Since independence 31 years ago, international investors have injected more than $380 billion into the economy – 70 per cent of the total investment flow into the Central Asian region in that time. Constitutional changes are set to entrench the stability that has marked the history of independent Kazakhstan, and a diversifying economy underpinned by a robust legal system is opening new doors for investors and companies who are targeting the country.

Stats

More than $380 billion invested in Kazakhstan over the past 31 years – 70% of the total international investment flow into the Central Asian region, $7.58 billion foreign direct investment in Kazakhstan in the second quarter of 2022,  $20.51 billion EU imports from Kazakhstan in 2021, according to the United Nations COMTRADE database.

More than 1,400 companies from 64 countries registered at the AIFC, $179 billion* (83,951,587.90 KZT Million) Gross National Product in Kazakhstan in 2021

* based on the exchange rate of USD1/ KZT468 as at 26 October 2022

An opportunity of scale

The scale of Kazakhstan may surprise those investors beginning to take an interest in the opportunities afforded by the Eurasian land mass. At 2.7 million square kilometres, it sits 9th in the world rankings, making it slightly less than four times the size of Texas (1). The country has a small but highly-educated and motivated population of 19.4 million.

Kazakhstan borders China, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, sitting at the crossroads of Eurasia, a fact reflected in the range of ethnic groups and languages contained within its borders. Meanwhile, the country’s economy stands at a rather different sort of crossroads. Since gaining independence from the Soviet Union 31 years ago, Kazakhstan has become best-known economically for its huge reserves of minerals and hydrocarbons, including uranium, copper, zinc, oil and gas – and these remain critical to the Kazakh economy. And with a large agricultural sector this abundance of natural resources – and their current high prices – underpin the economy.

However, Kazakhstan is not complacent, and government-backed initiatives are under way to diversify the economy into sectors such as transport, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, petrochemicals and even higher education, as part of what has been called “an economy based on brainpower” by Shigeo Katsu, President of Nazarbayev University.
