The ambassador of Kazakhstan to India, Doulat Kuanyshev, called on UT administrator Shivraj Patil at the Punjab Raj Bhavan here on Tuesday.

Discussing various issues at length, Patil said India enjoyed “mature bilateral relations and shared a strong socio-cultural bond with Kazakhstan. 

He emphasised on the need to strengthen economic and trade ties of the two countries through joint ventures in different fields.

Patil said there was a major scope to expand business cooperation in the fields of agriculture.

For this, he said, the two nations should send delegations to know each other's expertise. This will be of immense benefit to the people of both the countries.”

The administrator also spoke on agriculture in Punjab. He said Punjab had achieved a major breakthrough in the agriculture sector. “The state is emerging as a progressive and vibrant investment destination.”

He said the state government had evolved a responsive mechanism and coordinated agro-related activities in close coordination with the scientific experts of Punjab Agriculture University, Ludhiana.

He suggested for strengthening partnerships in agro-related ventures, especially food processing.

The ambassador, too, felt there was tremendous scope for bilateral economic cooperation between Kazakhstan and India, especially in nuclear energy and other natural resources such as oil and minerals with special focus on agriculture.

He said Kazakhstan's economy was closely connected to its further integration in international trade and investment relations, efficient use of its natural and human resources, incremental exports of industrial and agricultural products. He said that there was potential for bilateral cooperation. Patil also presented a set of book to the ambassador.
