The expert expressed hope that the Government of the country will share its vision on these directions with other States.

"These two programs are so consonant that in the modern world, they can strengthen each other. As a UN staff member, I am very interested in the experience of Kazakhstan being studied and applied in other countries", the speaker said.

Former Foreign Minister of Poland Wlodzimierz Cimoszewicz commented on the launch of the International Financial Center early next year. According to him, the legal order of the AIFC will function within the framework of English law.

"This will greatly simplify the procedures for doing business and attracting foreign partners to Kazakhstan. Given the fact that there are similar financial centers in other countries, such as Hong Kong and Singapore, one can expect success in this area in your country", the expert from the Republic of Poland concluded.
