The main factor is the creation of a common market, a single economic structure, “said Nursultan Nazarbayev.
The President of Kazakhstan stressed that the growth of the economy directly affects the increase in the level of trade turnover and the improvement of relations between the countries.

Now we have a task to ensure that our internal issues, the relations between our countries, have their development in the future. The main role in this work is assigned to the governments: the solution of economic problems, the settlement of issues of interaction between states, – summed up the Head of State.
