“The initiative of the First President of Kazakhstan – Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev, on the ‘Three Dialogues’ on establishing partnerships with large regional associations and projects in Europe and Asia, deserves special attention,” said Mamin.

“Today, fintech companies of China, Russia and Uzbekistan have already been using this opportunity,” the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan emphasized.

Mamin initiated the creation of the Council for the Development of the Digital Economy.

“The Council could become a platform for the development of mutually beneficial partnership for the introduction in our countries of such new technological elements as 5G, Smart Cities, big data, blockchain, digital assets, as well as the construction and deployment of data centers, the development of data transit, participation in the global market for digital services,” said the prime minister of Kazakhstan.
