Located between Europe and Asia, Kazakhstan is one of the leading economies in Central Asia.

After the Prime Minister’s visit in 2013, trade with Kazakhstan has received special attention.

Kazakhstan will be hosting two major international events: the Expo “Future Energy” and the Winter World Student Games in 2017. Significant commercial opportunities across a variety of sectors will arise for UK companies from these events, the UKTI press release reads.

To take advantage of this, UK Trade & Investment are running a Market Visit to Kazakhstan, which will highlight the following opportunity sectors for UK companies: education, green technology, infrastructure, commercial security, entertainment, nuclear energy, agriculture.
