The MoU signing was followed by and interactive assembly of trade representatives from both nations.

He reaffirmed that the country apart from allowing private and public enterprises to set up commerce exchanges in Kazakhstan, will be offering services of Special Economic Zones (SEZ) setups that are at present under construction. Once the construction of these zones is completed the government will come up with comprehensive taxation policy. He pointed out that the textiles entities can now also consider setting up operations out of presently in service textiles SEZ in the country.

Offering remarks, Mr. S. Sen, Principle Advisor, CII, highlighted CII's efforts in energising corporations to engage in more interactions. He said, "Both Atameken Union and CII should work towards identifying key sectors for economic cooperation. At present the thrust has been on sectors like Oil & Gas, Metallurgy, Agriculture, Pharmaceuticals, machinery, textiles, and the likes.
