“Over the years of independence, we, as a country, have achieved a lot, but you will probably all agree that we still have a huge potential in our country, especially export. So how can we translate the export potential into financial capital for our country? For a long time now, all countries are not just developing commodity markets, but are focusing on the development of human capital. It is the development of human capital that allows these countries and can allow our country to increase our export earnings", - noted during the seminar Yernur Rysmagambetov, CEO of the AIFC Authority.
Azamat Askaruly, General Director of QazTrade JSC:
“Today, both external and internal conditions for the functioning of organizations are changing very quickly, which puts most companies in front of the need to prepare personnel for work in different conditions. Today's specialists must demonstrate not only good professional training, but also fully comply with the requirements of modern reality. Our educational program was created taking into account the requests of exporters and includes the most pressing issues of conducting export activities."
Saken Shayakhmetov, Deputy Akim of Pavlodar region:
