During the past meetings, the sides discussed a wide range of issues of trade and economic cooperation between Russia and Kazakhstan, including a number of joint projects and initiatives in the field of agricultural engineering, automotive, aviation and the digital economy.

At the end of 2018, the mutual trade between our countries grew by about 5%, and a significant share of deliveries from Russia to Kazakhstan fell on high-tech products - machinery, equipment, vehicles - almost 27%

- emphasized Denis Manturov.

Speaking about cooperation in the field of agricultural engineering, the parties noted the need to increase production cooperation. The joint projects of the Petersburg Tractor Plant and Rostselmash with Kazakhstani companies were discussed.

As an example of successful cooperation in the automotive industry, the KAMAZ-Engineering plant in Kokshetau was noted as one of the first major joint projects in this field. Production was established in 2005, it assembles heavy-duty cars of the KAMAZ model range.

The Avtovaz company is also interested in deepening industrial cooperation with Kazakhstan partners.

The project to create an auto assembly plant in Kazakhstan continues, and the assembly of full-cycle LADA vehicles may be launched before the end of this year . This will contribute to building up Kazakhstan's production competencies, creating additional jobs, and will also serve the interests of the final consumers of Russian products in Kazakhstan.
