Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan Beibut Atamkulov сomments on new functions of RK MFA

According to the instructions of the head of state regarding the economization of the foreign policy of Kazakhstan, attraction of foreign investment and promotion of products of Kazakhstan enterprises to foreign markets have always been one of the main priorities of the foreign ministry.

From now on, the Investment Committee will be transferred from the former Ministry of Investment and Development of Kazakhstan and Kazakh Invest JSC to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In view of this, in addition to the main foreign policy activities, we will actively use the mechanism of the above structures. This will give grounds to expect that the attraction of investment will be more focused on foreign investors.

Kazakhstan has established effective institutions for interaction with investors at all levels. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be engaged in overall coordination of both investment and export activities.

As is known, all sectoral ministries deal with export, the MFA is charged with coordinating their efforts, primarily using the potential of foreign missions, both in the form of disseminating information in a host country, organizing bilateral meetings and negotiations, and directly supporting Kazakh exporters.

In addition to the previously adopted Joint Action Plans with the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Defense and Aerospace Industry, EIC Kazakh Export JSC, NCE Atameken and Agency for Civil Service Affairs and Anti-Corruption, the ministry will soon develop a practical mechanism for implementing the decree of the head of state regarding new scope of duties of the MFA.

Coordinating export activity will allow to study the accessibility of foreign markets for Kazakh products in a targeted manner and, which is equally important, to build an agreed negotiating tactic on removing barriers to goods and services from our country.
