Malgorzata Thouard, the Ambassador of Friendship from the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan, highlighted the reciprocal nature of the visit via her Facebook account.
France is a key and reliable strategic partner of Kazakhstan in the European Union, whereas Kazakhstan is France's main partner in the Central Asian region. As my work is closely linked to the cooperation between our two countries, I am particularly interested in projects with a strong cultural, social, and environmental impact. The forthcoming visit is expected to witness the signing of several crucial agreements in these areas, which will further strengthen the bonds between the people of France and Kazakhstan.
On November 2, Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban will arrive in Astana to discuss the expansion of Kazakh-Hungarian collaboration in trade, economics, investment, and cultural-humanitarian spheres.
