We are pleased to announce that the KCBC's 4th annual meeting will take place in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, June 2020 in the margin of the Twelve WTO Ministerial Conference.
This meeting will showcase trade and cooperation between Kazakhstan and Canada, with a focus on discussing opportunities and challenges related to a variety of industry fields.
The KCBC meeting will convene leading government officials, diplomats, scholars and experts of various fields in agriculture & agri-food, health-education, energy, mining & natural resources, oil & gas, and transportation/ aerospace/construction, finance.
Creation of a Kazakhstan Canada Business Council (KCBC) has been one of the key measures to promote bilateral business ties.
Given the fact that the uranium industry occupies the leading position in bilateral cooperation, CEO of Kazatomprom (former) Askar Zhumagaliyev and President and CEO of Cameco Corporation Tim Gitzel agreed to become co-chairs of the Business Council (representing the Kazakh side and the Canadian side, respectively). Mr. Gitzel is a member of the Foreign Investors Council, which operates under the auspices of the President of Kazakhstan. The main goal of the KCBC is to promote cooperation, trade and investment between companies and organizations of Kazakhstan and Canada. The KCBC is comprised of Canadian and Kazakhstani businesses meeting once per year (alternating between Kazakhstan and Canada) to address issues pertinent to cooperation and bilateral trade between the two countries. The council is supported by the governments of both sides and forms a platform to promote a stronger and more multi-faceted relationship between Canada and Kazakhstan.
We look forward to your participation!
More details will be followed.
