Serbia-Kazakhstan Business Forum: $30-million-contract concluded

Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic has officially opened the Serbia – Kazakhstan Business Forum with over 170 company representatives in attendance.

The first deal that Serbia and Kazakhstan concluded is worth $30 million where a Serbian and a Kazakh company will cooperate on building fire trucks.

This is the first contract that was signed in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, on Tuesday, at the one-day the Serbia – Kazakhstan Business Forum which was officially opened by the Serbian and Kazakh PMs, Aleksandar Vucic and Bakytzhan Abdirovich Sagintayev respectively.

The President of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, Marko Cadez said that although the two countries had established a much closer cooperation last year, there was still plenty of room for improvement.

“We drafted a lot of projects in agriculture, waste water, waste management and renewable energy sources. We have also develop a series of programmes that could be interesting to Kazakh’s side”, Cadez said.

A total of 60 Serbian and 111 Kazakh companies attended the Forum.


The Kazakh PM Bakytzhan Abdirovich Sagintayev announced that he would meet with the Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday to discuss Fiat exporting to the markets of the Eurasian Union.

“We will be getting an answer about the possibility of Fiat exporting vehicles to the Eurasian Union under preferential terms in the shortest time possible”, Serbian PM said.
