#Kazakhstan - L-UE biex iżżid il-kooperazzjoni ma 'u l-appoġġ għall-pajjiżi tal-Asja Ċentrali

| Ottubru 10, 2019

Kazakhstan and central Asia should not be the source of a “competition” between East and West Europe, a conference in Brussels was told. The comments, by a senior EU official, come amid concern that oil-rich countries like Kazakhstan may be tempted to move towards the east,namely Russia, or Europe and the west in the future.

Peter Burian, Rappreżentant Speċjali ta 'l-UE għall-Asja Ċentrali fis-Servizz Ewropew għall-Azzjoni Esterna (SEAE), qal, "Aħna mhux qed nimbuttaw lill-imsieħba tagħna fir-reġjun biex jagħżlu wieħed jew l-ieħor. Hemm spazju għal kulħadd u din mhix kompetizzjoni. "

He added, “I truly believe this is possible provided all actors and players respect and pursue interest of the region over narrow national interest. The EU wants to work with everyone in the region who shares these approaches and principles.”

The EEAS official was one of the keynote speakers at the high level conference, “The New EU Strategy for Central Asia – Enhancing Regional Cooperation”, on Wednesday.

Organised by the Berlin Eurasian Club, the meeting was told by Burian of the potential the country offers, saying, “The EU intends to step up cooperation with and support for Central Asian countries including Kazakhstan.”

He said, “Central Asia is high on the agenda of the EU these days. It is not because of some conflict or crisis in the region but on the contrary because of positive developments.”

He also warned, though, of “challenges” including in the labour market, adding, “One million young people in Kazakhstan enter the labour market each year which presents opportunities but also challenges. Unless these people find work there can be negative consequences with some even maybe being lured into extremism.”

Burian also called on the EU to “work together” in the region, telling the packed conference, “At present there is a temptation for fragmentation which does not help.”

L-interess tal-UE fir-reġjun, qal, kien "rifless b'mod ċar" fl-Istrateġija l-ġdida tagħha dwar l-Asja Ċentrali, approvata f'Ġunju mill-istati membri.

Dan għandu l-għan li jiffoka l-azzjoni futura ta 'l-UE f'dan il-qasam fuq żewġ "prijoritajiet ewlenin" inklużi "imsieħba għar-reżiljenza" u jinkoraġġixxu pajjiżi fir-reġjun biex "jibdlu l-isfidi ambjentali f'opportunitajiet."

He said, “We want to step up our cooperation to support economic modernisation and there is a lot we can do to support stronger and competitive job-generation.”

He told the meeting, “We want to translate political commitments into reality.”

He added, “The EU also intends to step up cooperation with central Asian partners to promote peace in Afghanistan. We also want to intensify our cooperation to promote sustainable, comprehensive and rules based connectivity which allows central Asia avoiding the debt trap and the trap of poor quality projects.”

Burian ħabbar ukoll li l-UE stabbilixxiet pjattaforma ġdida: il-Forum Ekonomiku tal-Asja Ċentrali tal-UE li, qal huwa l-konferenza, se jappoġġja l-kooperazzjoni ekonomika.

Il-kummenti tiegħu jaslu wara li l-president tal-Kummissjoni Ewropea Jean-Claude Juncker dan l-aħħar qal li l-infrastruttura għandha toħloq interkonnessjonijiet bejn il-pajjiżi kollha fid-dinja u mhux sempliċement dipendenza fuq pajjiż wieħed.

“We want to support the modernisation processes in all central Asian countries but new technologies and equipment are worth nothing if you do not have the human capacity and the regulatory framework to use them in the most efficient manner.”

Further contribution came from Yermek Kosherbayev, deputy foreign minister in Kazakhstan who said relations “between our countries have been developing successfully with mutual trust and respect.”

Huwa enfasizza bosta żviluppi ewlenin, inkluż il-bini ta 'sistema għall-attrazzjoni u l-appoġġ ta' investiment barrani u l-iffokar fuq l-esperjenza tagħha fl-attirazzjoni ta 'investimenti.

Il-pajjiż għandu żoni ekonomiċi speċjali 12 u żoni industrijali 23 (SEZ u IZ) b'orjentazzjonijiet settorjali differenti, li jinkludu infrastruttura lesta u firxa wiesgħa ta 'preferenzi ta' investiment.

Additionally, the Astana International Financial Centre “embodies the best models of financial centers in New York, Singapore, London and Dubai on the principles and norms of English law.”

Ġie enfasizzat ukoll ix-xogħol li sar fuq it-titjib tax-xogħol biex jiġu attirati investimenti. Dan jinkludi l-Kunsill ta 'Koordinazzjoni li jindirizza kwistjonijiet sistemiċi li jimpedixxu l-implimentazzjoni ta' attivitajiet ta 'investiment, kif ukoll kwistjonijiet immirati ta' investituri u jieħu deċiżjonijiet skond dan.

Is-suq tal-ekwità privata (investiment dirett) huwa, qal, ukoll "qed jiżviluppa attivament" fil-Każakstan.
