This was discussed by participants of the International Specialized Exhibition on Machinery that takes place in the capital as part of the 9th forum of Kazakhstan Manufacturers.

Indeed, they help us in this,” noted Liliya Lukoyanova, spokesperson for a Belarusian machine tools production company.

Nearly 200 leading foreign and Kazakh enterprises presented their equipment at the Kazakhstan Machinery Fair 2021. It is possible to find everything here, from bolts to oversized equipment for agriculture, mining and metallurgical complex, railway, oil and gas industries. Important transactions are being made and negotiations are also underway on the sidelines of the forum.

We have the opportunity to expand our exports, since the European countries are also represented here,” said Chingiz Oksikbayev, spokesperson for a chemical liquids production company.

Since the beginning of the year, Kazakhstan has sold mechanical engineering products worth almost US$742 million. By 2025, the volume of exports should reach nearly US$3 billion, experts said.
