During the event, the newly formed Business Council will be presented and experts will give their view on the potentials for Swedish products and services in the Kazakhstan marketplace.


The Kazakhstan government recently launched a new economic policy for the coming years that highlights a number of areas where significant investments will be made. The new policy will serve as a key instrument to push Kazakhstan to continue modernization and to assist with the overall objective of becoming one of the 30 most developed countries by 2050.

For Swedish companies, this new economic policy is a welcome initiative.It means many new investments that will continuously transform and develop the Kazakhstan economy within areas where Sweden can offer cooperation in terms of services, products and technology. Among other areas, the development of public infrastructure, energy efficiency, green technologies, industrial and social infrastructure and the focus on small- and medium-sized business.

In an effort to promote and support bilateral trade between Sweden and Kazakhstan, the Embassy of Kazakhstan has taken this initiative to form the Sweden Kazakhstan Business Council.

*Direct drilling

As the name indicates, direct drilling refers to systems where the first and only soil tillage operation is performed by the seed drill. Direct drilling systems are usually sub-divided according to the soil cultivating action of the seed drill. Seed drills that cultivate most of the soil surface actually have more characteristics in common with ploughless or reduced tillage than with systems in which more specialised seed drills are used.

Pure direct drilling (No-till) systems often use special seed drills that concentrate on placing the seed with minimal soil disruption. Direct drilling is most competitive in dry areas.
