In December 2018, the domestic company, AAEngineering LLP, entered into the contract for the construction of a gold mining plant at one of the largest deposits in Kyrgyzstan under the support of the Development Bank of Kazakhstan and KazakhExport. The contract amount is 107 million US dollars,” - said Aidar Arifkhanov, speaking at the meeting of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
