During the meeting doctor Szili informed the President about the negotiations on developing inter-parliamentary ties that she held on the 16th of May with the chairmen of Mazhilis and the Senate of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
- We expect that mister Nazarbayev will arrive in Hungary for an official visit later this year. Now we are working on the Agreement on economic collaboration between Kazakhstan and Hungary, which is planned to be signed in the second half of the year. We think that we have to intensify the work of the Kazakhstani-Hungarian intergovernmental commission that is engaged in issues of trade, tourism, education and economy, - Katalin Szili said at a press briefing.
Issues of investment collaboration were considered in the course of the meeting. Doctor Szili has stated that Hungary is ready to participate in the transportation of kazakhstani oil and gas to Europe. The sides have also discussed collaboration issues in the area of pharmacology, processing of agricultural productions, exchange of new technologies, and also the reestablishment of the air link between Astana and Budapest.
The Speaker of the National Assembly of Hungary said that she was pleased to know about the amendments to the Constitution that the President of Kazakhstan announced in the Parliament of the country yesterday. Doctor Szili supposes that the implementation of these initiatives will form a necessary legislative basis for further deepening the democratic processes in the kazakhstani society.
