As part of his official visit to The Hague, Prime Minister Askar Mamin met with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and attended the opening of the Kazakhstan–Netherlands Business Forum.

During the meeting with Mark Rutte, prospects for further development of trade, economic and investment cooperation, interaction in the energy, financial, transport and logistics, agricultural, IT and scientific fields were discussed.

“The first President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev laid the foundation for stable partnership relations between Kazakhstan and the Netherlands. The Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev maintains the continuity of a multi-vector peace-loving foreign policy and pays special attention to strengthening bilateral cooperation,” Mamin said.

The Netherlands is one of the key trade, economic and investment partners of Kazakhstan in Europe. Over the years of independence, the gross inflow of direct investment from the Netherlands to Kazakhstan exceeded $92 billion. Over 900 enterprises with the participation of Dutch capital operate in Kazakhstan. At the end of 2018, bilateral trade amounted to $6.5 billion.

In turn, Mark Rutte expressed his confidence that the official visit of the prime minister of Kazakhstan to the Netherlands would give a significant impetus to the further development of bilateral cooperation.

The prime ministers of Kazakhstan and the Kingdom of the Netherlands attended the opening of the V Kazakhstan-Netherlands Business Forum, in which five documents were signed in the presence of the heads of government of the two countries:

  • An agreement between the Kazakh company K-Agro and the Dutch Farm Frites on the creation of a joint venture for the production of French fries in the Zhambyl region. The project is worth $145 million;

  • An agreement between JSC NC Kazakhstan Garysh Sapary and the NEASCO group of companies on cooperation on the implementation of projects on Earth remote sensing and geographic information systems;

  • a memorandum between Dal Agro Park and Dutch Greenhouse Delta on cooperation on the construction of an agricultural park in the Turkistan region on 200 hectares.

The forum was attended by about 200 representatives of Kazakh and Dutch business. Representatives of Baiterek NMH, JSC NC KazMunayGas, AIFC, Deloitte, Shell, the Confederation of Business and Employers of the Netherlands, and others presented reports on the prospects for the development of trade, economic and investment cooperation between the two countries.
