At the meeting, the Heads of State discussed issues of developing friendly bilateral relationships and put an emphasis on the development of economic cooperation between Kazakhstan and the UAE.
Economic cooperation between our two countries is rapidly growing now, and the project of Aktau City financed by investors from the Emirates is an evidence of that.
Another example is the construction project of the 88-storey multifunctional complex Abu-Dhabi Plaza. Nursultan Nazarbayev invited Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahayan to participate in the official presentation of this largest project, which will be held on 31 October.
During the meeting, the Heads of State agreed to build a refinery complex in Kazakhstan at the expenses of investors from the United Arab Emirates. In addition, by request of Kazakhstan’s President, the Emirates will build a prenatal center costing some 20 million dollars in Shymkent. The President of the UAE also announced that a Mosque will be built in Shymkent.
For more detailed discussion of these and other issues, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahayan invited Nursultan Nazarbayev to visit the UAE, and this invitation was gratefully accepted.
