[Policy] Kazakh Ambassador Promotes 'Partnership' with Korea




H.E. Dulat Bakishev, the Republic of Kazakhstan's Ambassador to Korea, spoke about the partnership between the two countries in a lunchtime presentation here at Asia Society Korea Center. Although Korea and Kazakhstan have only had diplomatic relations with each other for 20 years, Ambassador Bakishev remarked that the two countries' relationship reaches far back into the history of Shilla and Goguryeo dynasties in the early Common Era. Before the 1997 Asian financial crisis, Korea was the third-largest investor in Kazakhstan, with a prime interest in mining and energy. Korean investments are back in Kazakhstan after falling off as a result of the crisis. The Ambassador noted the listing of Kazakhmys, a mining company that is now a "global player," on the London Stock Exchange with the help of Samsung as one success story stemming from the partnership between Kazakhstan and Korea.
