"ROP Ltd collected about $400 mln in Kazakhstan where 18 mln people live in 2018. To put it mildly, the number is incredible," said Amirtay to Kassym-Jomart Tokayev at the meeting in Nur-Sultan.
"Russia approaches this issue cautiously," he added.
"The state enterprise RosExpoOperator (Russian ecological operator-KazTAG), started with a market research in 2017. In 2018 the utilization fees in Russia where 147 million people live amounted to $30 mln. In 2019 it is planned to collect $40 mln," he said.
Getting back to ROP Ltd, Amirtay wondered, "what will be in 2019?"
