The head of state thanked Eckhard Cordes for his participation in preparations and opening of the business forum held during the official visit of Nursultan Nazarbayev to Berlin in February this year.
“Thank you for your proposal asking the German Government to support Kazakhstan's initiative on holding EXPO-2017 in Astana. During our last meeting, we agreed on mutual cooperation in the field of mineral resources, industry, and high technology. Today, we need to sum up the first preliminary results,” the President said.
“I would like to point out that I am impressed by the growth rates of your country’s economy. Also I want to emphasize the positive dynamics of the relationship between Kazakhstan and Germany which have recently intensified. The agreements that were signed last February bear significance for the economies of the two countries.
