And today the opening of the business service center in Mangistau region is a proof of the quality business development support at the state level, because a strong business is a strong state," Deputy Governor of Mangystau region Sholpan Ilmukhanbetova said at the opening ceremony.

"The infrastructure created by "Damu" Fund to support small and medium-sized businesses is aimed at improving the professional level of entrepreneurs in all regions of the country. It will provide maximum coverage of government support for small and medium businesses and is already contributing to the growth of business activity and employment. Furthermore, it optimizes the costs for businesses to obtain information necessary for the successful management and business development," Gabit Lesbekov said.
