About Forum


Hosted by the Almaty City Government, the event will focus on investment opportunities Almaty provides, especially with regards to large-scale infrastructural projects, retail sector (franchising and chain stores), tourism, food processing and light industry, while also providing engagement opportunities with government decision makers and regional business executives.

Almaty – now one of the TOP-10 fastest growing financial centers in the world, ranked 51st overall according to Global Financial Centers Index – is the biggest city in Kazakhstan and also its financial, cultural, educational and tourism center. The GRP per capita is the highest in the region – 29,000 USD, which at the country scale contributes 20% to Kazakhstan’s overall GDP, 28% to tax revenues and over 40% of all trade operations happen here. Throughout past several years, this put a spotlight on Almaty as a regional powerhouse filled with investment and business opportunities

The forum will feature series of discussions, interactive presentations and workshops (including topics such as state support measures for investors and businesses), as well as tours to special free economic zones, industrial spaces and touristic destinations.
