The official ceremony to be held on July 5.
President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev invited participants of the Astana Economic Forum to take part in the official presentation of the Astana International Financial Centre, BNews.kz reports.
“This is already launched an independent hub at a site of EXPO-2017. On this occasion I want to invite you to the official presentation of this centre on July 5 this year,” the head of state said.
Astana Economic Forum is an annual central business event of Eurasia. Over 10 years of its existence, it was attended by about 50,000 delegates from 150 states of the world, among them: over 20 Nobel winners and 30 foreign political figures of the highest level. As part of the Congress, more than 300 memorandums and agreements for the amount exceeding 20 billion US dollars were concluded. The Forum’s speakers include politicians, scientists and economists, media representatives and public figures of the world level, representatives of international organisations, financial institutions, and business elite.
Fast and significant changes in economies, social sphere, digital technologies, production, and consumption, as well as ongoing technological transition, became an impetus to create Global Challenges Summit in 2018 based on the Astana Economic Forum.
