Ċans li juri l-kollaborazzjoni attwali u futura bejn il-#EU u l-#Kazakhstan

| Jista 16, 2019

Upcoming elections in the EU and Kazakhstan represent a chance to forge “ever closer” relations between the two sides, according to a Brussels-based Asia expert. European elections from 23-26 May and presidential elections in Kazakhstan on 9 June are an “ideal opportunity” to step up relations, jikteb Fraser Cameron, of the EU-Asia Centre.

Bejn iż-żewġ stħarriġ, fuq ix-16th u x-Xnumx ta 'Mejju, huwa l-Forum Ekonomiku ta' l-Astana (AEF) annwali u din hija wkoll ċans, li jemmen, li turi l-kollaborazzjoni attwali u futura bejn l-UE u l-Każakstan.

Aktar minn ekonomisti domestiċi u internazzjonali 3,000, mexxejja politiċi u rappreżentanti tas-soċjetà ċivili huma mistennija li jiġbru f'Nur-Sultan (qabel f'Astana) għall-AEF. Bejn wieħed u ieħor nofs il-parteċipanti jkunu delegati minn aktar minn pajjiżi 100. Il-forum ser jindirizza l-bidliet fl-ekonomiji globali, fis-settur soċjali, fit-teknoloġiji diġitali, f'diversi industriji u fir-Raba 'Rivoluzzjoni Industrijali. Direttur Maniġerjali tal-Fond Monetarju Internazzjonali Christine Lagarde, 2018 Premju Nobel fl-Ekonomija u l-Ekonomista Prinċipali tal-Bank Dinji Paul Romer huma fost il-kelliema.

Lagarde se jieħu sehem fis-sessjoni plenarja dwar l-ekonomija l-ġdida u l-potenzjal ta 'investiment dejjem jikber tal-Każakstan

L-AEF ġie mlaqqa 'għall-ewwel darba fix-2008 f'nofs il-kriżi finanzjarja dinjija u kiber f' pjattaforma internazzjonali li tgħin biex tifforma l-aġenda ekonomika globali.

Cameron, Direttur taċ-Ċentru UE-Asja, qal lil din il-websajt li "l-mument kien opportun għal titjib fir-relazzjonijiet UE-Każakstan."

The former European Commission adviser added: “This summer there would be new leaderships on both sides and one could envisage a broader agenda focusing on connectivity.

“Kazakhstan is at the heart of both the Belt and Road Initiative and the EU’s connectivity strategy. It would be a boost also for EU-China relations if Brussels and Beijing could work with Kazakhstan partners to overcome some of the hold ups on infrastructure and digital commerce.”

Europe and Central Asia European External Action Service Deputy Managing Director Luc Devigne believes 2019 could be an important year for EU-Kazakhstan relations.

Huwa kien qed jitkellem b'antiċipazzjoni tad-dħul fis-seħħ sħiħ tal-Ftehim Mtejjeb ta 'Sħubija u Kooperazzjoni (EPCA) bejn il-Każakstan u l-UE. Kwistjonijiet oħra kienu jinkludu t-tisħiħ tal-pedamenti għas-suċċess ekonomiku u kwistjonijiet reġjonali u ta 'sigurtà.

Waqt li jindika li l-UE hija l-akbar investitur fl-ekonomija tal-pajjiż, huwa jemmen ukoll li l-Każakstan huwa sieħeb importanti. Dan l-aħħar tkellem dwar il- "livell għoli ta 'relazzjonijiet bejn il-Każakstan u l-UE fl-isferi ekonomiċi, politiċi u kulturali-umanitarji" u nnota li l-Ftehim dwar Sħubija u Kooperazzjoni Mtejba ffirmat fix-2015 se jippromwovi aktar żvilupp. Dan, huwa nnota, jikkoinċidi wkoll mal-pjanijiet ta 'modernizzazzjoni tal-Każakstan.

Examples of close cooperation between the two sides includes the European Union ‘Enhancing Criminal Justice in Kazakhstan’ (EUCJ) project under which the EU provided 261 stationary computers and printers to improve the material and technical base of its probation service.

Il-Kazakistan fetaħ l-akbar impjant tal-enerġija solari fl-Asja Ċentrali fir-reġjun ta 'Karaganda, eżempju ieħor ta' kollaborazzjoni attwali.

Il-proġett kien immexxi minn partijiet interessati minn membri tal-UE Repubblika Ċeka, Slovakkja u Ġermanja u attira investimenti diretti barranin li jammontaw għal $ 340 miljun.

The EU is the country’s biggest trading partner and investor, each accounting for 50%, but oil makes up no less than 88% of all Kazakh exports to Europe.

Since its independence, there has been $300 billion foreign direct investment in the country but the “lion’s share” went to extractive industries.

Kazakh Prime Minister Askar Mamin met recently with the EU’s ambassador to the counry, Sven-Olov Carlsson, and others to discuss new approaches to investment co-operation. In 2018, foreign direct investment in Kazakhstan increased 15.8% to $24bn and foreign trade increased 20%. The sides discussed recently adopted approaches for attracting investment.

Kull sena xi ċittadini 100,000 tal-Każakstan jivvjaġġaw lejn l-Ewropa għan-negozju, it-turiżmu u biex jistudjaw u, b'ħarsa lejn il-futur, huwa ttamat li skema ta 'faċilitazzjoni tal-viża tkompli ttejjeb il-kuntatt bħal dan "nies għal nies".

All eyes now switch to the upcoming elections and the Forum where the main theme is ‘Inspiring Growth: People, Cities, Economies’.

Matul l-aħħar għaxar snin, il-Forum kiseb għarfien bħala konferenza internazzjonali ewlenija li tindirizza kwistjonijiet ekonomiċi u finanzjarji globali.

Il-parteċipanti ser jiddiskutu modi ġodda għal tkabbir sostenibbli, żvilupp tal-kapital uman u bini ta 'kapaċità fl-ibliet bħala ċentri internazzjonali ta' għarfien u innovazzjoni.

Il-ġranet 2 se jaraw viżjonarji globali u esperti internazzjonali ewlenin jingħaqdu flimkien biex jiddiskutu l-aktar kwistjonijiet kruċjali li qed tiffaċċja l-ekonomija dinjija u jifformulaw soluzzjonijiet.

A spokesman for the organizers said: “The participation of such top politicians and experts in this year’s edition of AEF is not only an indicator of the growing interest in the event itself, but also of the readiness for open dialogue and mutual co-operation.”
