Elon Musk receives proposal to build plant in Kazakhstan

U.S. entrepreneur Elon Musk was offered to build a plant for the manufacturing of autonomous Tesla cars in Kazakhstan. Mayor of Turkistan city Rashid Ayupov came up with such a proposal to the investor via Twitter. It’s absolutely possible, Ayupov said. The more such messages the Kazakhs send to the business magnate, the more likely it is that he will respond. The launch of a high-tech plant will allow the Turkistan region to develop in a new direction, he believes.

“As a patriot of my country, I would like such global companies to be present in Kazakhstan. Because it will give young people the opportunity to grow professionally. Science, advanced technology and export potential - I think this is very important,” said the mayor.
