Kazakhstan business opportunities
Since its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, the Kazakhstan economy, rich in oil, gas and minerals, has doubled the size of its gross domestic product (GDP) in real terms. As the ninth largest country in the world, and strategically located in Central Asia, the country is increasingly a hub for doing business. In 2017, it will host the Expo2017, focusing on вЂњFuture EnergyвЂќ.
To discuss business opportunities in Kazakhstan including the Expo 2017, H.E. Ambassador Mrs. Mainura Murzamadiyeva visited Maastricht School of Management (MSM) on 4 September 2014. MSM facilitated a meeting for her with a number of dynamic Dutch companies, including Maastricht Health Campus, AKADIS B.V., Royal Boskalis Westminster, PDM Maastricht, Kersten Europe B.V., Greenport Venlo, and Waterschapsbedrijf Limburg.
The meeting was also attended by Mr. Bert Kersten, Regional Minister for Labor, Education, Sustainability and Energy, Limburg Province.
MSM has, in partnership with Almaty Management University (ALMA) been offering its internationally accredited Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in Kazakhstan since 1998.
