Dubai set to forge closer relations with Kazakhstan

posted on 03/04/2004: 805 views


Dubai is set to forge closer ties with Kazakhstan by signing a twining agreement soon with the mineral-rich Central Asian republic's western province of Mangistau. The Memorandum of Understand aims to foster greater social and economic cooperation between the UAE and Kazakhstan, according to Dr Sabit Tairov, Kazakh Consul General in Dubai.



While highlighting the shared cultural heritage between the UAE and Kazakhstan, the envoy also called for closer ties on the back of significant growth of relations since the late 1990s. Kazakhstan, a landlocked state the size of Western Europe, is home to 15 million people. Dr Tairov helped draft the air agreement in 1997 that allowed Kazakhstan Air to fly twice a week between Almaty, the old Kazakh capital, and Dubai. Today, four national Kazakh carriers operate on the route with 11 weekly flights.



Recently, a Kazakh team visited the UAE to seek expertise needed to set up a financial centre in Almaty, similar to the Dubai International Financial Centre. These efforts followed a state visit by president Nazarbayev to the UAE in January this year and the visits of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to Kazakhstan in 2002. The diplomat considers Dubai as the 'Pearl of the Gulf'. (The Gulf News)
