In an effort to strengthen commercial and cultural connections between the two nations, Kazakhstan is preparing to begin direct flights to and from Pakistan.
This idea was revealed by the Kazakh ambassador, Yerzhan Kistafin, on Wednesday while he was at the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI).
Direct flights between Almaty and Lahore will be available beginning in April; Almaty and Karachi will follow in May. The Kazakh envoy thinks that this will support the development of business and interpersonal ties, which will ultimately encourage economic growth and development in both nations.
Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, the president of Kazakhstan, is scheduled to visit Pakistan later this year, according to Kistafin. The ambassador claims that this trip will usher in a new era for commercial and economic ties between the two countries.
20 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) will be signed during the visit of the President to deepen Kazakhstan’s and Pakistan’s cooperation in a number of areas.
Businesspeople were invited by the ambassador to the introduction of direct flights and to learn more about Kazakhstan’s commercial potential.
The former president of ICCI, Zafar Bakhtawari, was also commended by the Kazakh envoy for his assistance in arranging the first-ever direct flights between the two nations.
Kazakhstan is to sign a transit trade agreement and an agreement between the financial sectors of both nations to strengthen economic connections and create a legal framework for promoting bilateral trade.
A group of Pakistani businesswomen will soon travel to Kazakhstan to look into possible business collaborations with their Kazakh counterparts in order to further promote commercial cooperation.
A significant accomplishment for both nations, the imminent start of direct flights between Pakistan and Kazakhstan is anticipated to open the door to expanded commerce and economic growth in the years to come.
