The plane and text of the Address is an example of President Nursultan Nazarbayev's deep vision on what should be done to achieve the task set," said Erik Lee, the Director, China, Central Asia, Europe at Singapore Cooperation Enterprise

According to Eric Lee, in the course of many years, the leadership of Kazakhstan has made great efforts to attract a lot of private investment in the country, to establish a great number of workplaces and the overall improvement of living standards of the citizens. 

"The results are praiseworthy, and the citizens' comments turned out to be positive. At the same time, it would be important to allocate time to study the most important sectorial clusters for Kazakhstan's development, and to develop a clear Roadmap of actions to attract and develop such clusters," he said.

The Singapore Cooperation Enterprise established by the Foreign MInistery and the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Singapore has a huge experience in working with foreign governments in developing, planning and implementing projects in various spheres, including urban planning, the affordable housing programme, education, economic development, 'smart city' and so on. SCE is willing to share its experience in developing Singapore with Kazakhstan and to carry on the work to implement joint projects and training both in Singapore and in Kazakhstan," he said. 

"Taking into account the initiatives and steps, the proposal to implement national programmes and projects, I am optimistic about Kazakhstan's future set by President Nazarbayev, and I hope that Singapore remains a good partner and fried to Kazakhstan," he said.
