Interest of US investors to Kazakhstan growing due to situation around Russia and Ukraine
Almaty. April 30. KazTAG - American investors showed growing interest in Kazakhstan due to the situation around Russia and Ukraine, said Ivan Chakarov, chief economist of Citi in Russia and CIS.
"Last week I went to the US and talked to the American investors. They asked many questions in this direction (investments in Kazakhstan-KazTAG) taking in account the situation in Russia," he said.
In his words the investors wondered, "is it possible to consider Kazakhstan as calm and secure territory in the CIS".
"We can say there has been increasing interest of investors, including the American investors, in respect of Kazakhstan, taking in account concern about additional sanctions in respect of Russia," he concluded.
