The Deputy Chairman of the Board of "Baiterek" National Managing Holding” JSC Anuar Omarkhojayev has held a meeting with the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the Dominican Republic, Tomas González, and the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the DR, Andrian Yelemessov.
Anuar Omarkhojayev has introduced the guest into the Holding’s activities emphasizing that Baiterek is the key institution of the Government, which ensures the implementation of the country’s sustainable economy objectives. He noted that the Holding and its subsidiaries support the development of large, medium and small-sized businesses, export potential, construction of affordable housing, as well as are engaged in technology transfer and the venture ecosystem development in the country.
"It should be admitted that the Dominican Republic is not a close partner of Kazakhstan geographically. But the history demonstrates that the dimensions and remoteness of countries do not play such a great role, especially in the age of globalization and integration," - said Anuar Omarkhojayev.
In his turn, Tomas González, expressed his gratitude for the warm welcoming and noted that is working on the attraction of investment to Kazakhstan.
"We would like to open the market in Kazakhstan, since the total export from Kazakhstan to Dominican Republic reaches only 5 million dollars. It’s pretty good, but it could be better. We have a rather big company engaged in telecommunications, agribusiness, being one of the largest grains and end products processing enterprise in the Caribbean region. We are also involved in construction business and real estate services," - Tomas González said.
Following the meeting, the parties have agreed to continue cooperation.
