The Prime Minister Askar Mamin paid a working visit to the Russian Federation.

In Tatarstan, Askar Mamin met with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. The prime ministers of the two countries noted the high level of strategic partnership and alliance that was founded and developed by the First President of Kazakhstan – Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The parties discussed the implementation of the agreements reached in the framework of the official visit of the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev to the Russian Federation in April 2019.

Intergovernmental negotiations were devoted to issues of further building up trade, economic, investment cooperation, industrial cooperation, and cooperation in the fields of energy, agriculture, and transport. The meeting also addressed topical issues of cross-border and integration cooperation.

Askar Mamin also visited the Taneko refinery, part of the Tatneft group of companies. In the capital of Tatarstan, the head of the Government visited the Kazan Helicopter Plant and examined the Khimgrad technopolis.

In Kazan, Askar Mamin held a meeting with Tatyana Bakalchuk, CEO of the leading Russian international online store Wildberries, during which the company’s plans to expand its business and build trade and logistics centers in Kazakhstan were discussed.

As a result of negotiations, the Memorandum of Understanding between the Astana International Financial Center and the company was signed, and a certificate of registration of Wildberries as a member of the AIFC was also awarded.

As part of a working visit, the Kazakh Prime Minister Askar Mamin, along with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, attended the opening ceremony of the WORLDSKILLS KAZAN 2019 championship.
