The Eurasian Economic Union space has the potential for foreign entrepreneurs and investors. These and other issues were discussed at the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Toronto. Canadians' interest in the market of the Eurasian Economic Union is growing with Kazakh markets offering unique opportunities and a variety of discounts for new investors. The Canadian Ambassador to Kazakhstan said the lack of information provided to businessmen exists and "such meetings will help change the situation." A special Business Council was established to promote cooperation between Kazakhstan and Canada. Chairman of the Board of "Kazatomprom" Askar Zhumagaliyev and President of Cameco Corporation Tim Gittel are chairing the meeting. The parties have recently signed the corresponding agreement.
Robert Fotheringham, CEO and Co-Founder of Fotheringham & Fang Investment Company said in his interview: "In recent years the relations between Kazakhstan and Canada have been developing considerably. Many of our regions are working directly with the country. In order to strengthen our cooperation in the future, we must conduct meetings like this one, to help recognize respective markets’ strengths and opportunities for collaboration".
