The issue of opening trading houses of Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan to promote products and conclude contracts between entrepreneurs of the two countries is currently being worked out, told Trend at the Kazakh Foreign Ministry.
“Kazakhstan attaches great importance to expanding trade and economic cooperation with Turkmenistan,” the statement says.
It is noted that it is mainly about expanding interaction between the two countries in the fuel and energy, transport and transit and industrial sectors.
The ministry stressed that this will become an incentive for increasing trade turnover, building up business ties between the business circles of the two states.
Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan are important players in the energy market.
“For many years, the transit of Turkmen gas through the territory of Kazakhstan to the PRC through the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China gas pipeline has been successfully carried out,” the ministry said.
Note that Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan are strategic partners. Ashgabat and Nur-Sultan regularly discuss partnership issues in the gas sector and in the development of cross-border mineral deposits.
