Business delegation from India visits Kazakhstan


ALMATY (TCA) — A delegation of the Indian Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry arrived in Almaty to invite Kazakhstan entrepreneurs to expand cooperation, the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs of Kazakhstan reported on July 24.

Assistant Secretary-General of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry Kunal Chowdhury said he is sure that Kazakhstani manufacturers will find their niche in the Indian market.

“The Indian market is huge. To meet its needs, Kazakh entrepreneurs can participate in various exhibitions. In September, we hold an annual food fair. Special interest is paid to agricultural products. We can talk with the organizers about giving discounts to participants from Kazakhstan,” Kunal Chowdhury said.

The Indian delegation invited Kazakh entrepreneurs to take part in a large healthcare exhibition which will be held in October with the participation of the Prime Minister of India. The event will bring together representatives of all related industries: clinics, associations, and pharmaceutical companies.

Director of the Chamber of Entrepreneurs of Almaty Yuri Tleumuratov expressed the opinion that participation in such exhibitions should involve not only businesspeople from Almaty, but also from other regions of Kazakhstan, especially those who are engaged in the production of food. “According to the regional business development map in Almaty, one of the niches is the pharmaceutical industry. In the Alatau district there is an industrial zone where we invite Indian investors to cooperate. Projects on wool processing would be interesting. Everyone knows how the textile industry is actively developing in your country,” Tleumuratov said to the Indian delegation.

Kazakhstan is India’s main trading partner in Central Asia, with Kazakhstan exporting more than importing.
