Dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen!
On behalf of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan I am glad to welcome the organizers, the guests, and participants of the
XI KAZENERGY Eurasian Forum.
The upcoming Forum will be dedicated to discussion of global issues in the area of sustainable energy and consideration of new models for establishment of mutually beneficial relations on the market. It will be one of the key events of the International Exhibition EXPO-2017 «Future Energy», in which member companies of KAZENERGY Association will take part. Thus, EXPO-2017 will be a demonstration site in the area of alternative energy sources, and KAZENERGY Forum will be a discussion platform, where state Governments and international organizations, heads and representatives of the global energy businesses will get an opportunity not only to discuss current trends of the international energy market, but also to analyze the previous work experience and set priorities for its further development.
In spite of the fact that Kazakhstan has significant deposits of raw hydrocarbons, the country strives to save energy and reduce energy consumption, projects are being implemented that are aimed at sustainable and safe development of the economy, important part of which is the energy sector. Many of such projects that constitute a real technological breakthrough will be presented at EXPO-2017 and KAZENERGY Forum. I am sure that implementation of these projects will promote new economic success in our country.
I invite you to take part in these events.
I wish you all meaningful discussions and work achievements!
Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan
