Welcome Letters 2018

My warmest felicitations and best wishes to Iteca LLP and all the participants of the various Exhibitions being held from 31 October to 2 November 2018 in Almaty. I am happy to note that India is also participating.

Kazakhstan is India’s largest Trade and Investment Partner in Central Asia. Our Trade and Economic Cooperation have grown steadily over the years.

I commend Iteca LLP for being in the forefront of organizing such successful exhibitions in Kazakhstan. Bringing Foreign Companies right to the doorstep of Kazakhstan business community contributes, in no small measure to increasing Trade and Economic cooperation between Kazakhstan and the rest of the Word. However, it is equally important for Kazakhstan Companies to take part in similar exhibitions held in India. India regularly holds major Trade Fairs and Exhibitions covering all sectors showcasing the best India has to offer. Details of such events are posted on the Embassy’s website (www.indembastana.in) as well as circulated among all the Kazakhstan Chambers of Commerce.

I would like to use this opportunity to invite members of Kazakhstan Food sector to participate in the 2nd
International Indian Food Exhibition “IndusFood” which is scheduled to be held from 14-15 January, 2019 in New Delhi.

I wish Iteca LLP and all participating countries success in the exhibitions and sincerely hope that India’s participation will contribute to further the dynamic partnership between Kazakhstan and India in Trade and Investment.

Prabhat Kumar
Ambassador of India

Ladies and gentlemen!

Allow me to greet and congratulate everyone on the opening of the 21st Central Asian International Food Exhibition “WorldFood Kazakhstan 2018” and the 13th Central Asian International Agriculture Exhibition “AgroWorld Kazakhstan 2018”. I would like to express my sincere thanks to the organizing committee for the opportunity to greet and congratulate all the participants and guests.

Kazakhstan is the center of economic and socio-cultural exchange in Central Asia. This exhibition is focused on agricultural technology, food production technology, food culture, food trends, products of Central Asia, which contribute to the development of the food industry not only in Kazakhstan, but also in other countries like Korea, Russia, Germany, China, and India.

Since 2008, the Republic of Korea has been a regular participant in the “WorldFood Kazakhstan” exhibition and provides Korean food and technology to Kazakhstan, contributing to the expansion of bilateral relations, by building partnerships in various fields.

Food is not only a very important factor necessary for a person to maintain life, but it is also a value for health, for the person’s well-being and pleasure. Agriculture and the food industry – are the fields that have fundamental meaning to a country and the people’s standard of living. Therefore, the development of these industries is very important.

I support the policy of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan in promoting domestic agriculture and the food industry, and I hope that the exhibition will bring more vivid opportunities for expansion in these projects.

I wish “WorldFood Kazakhstan” and “AgroWorld Kazakhstan” further development, and to all the participants and guests of the exhibition - promising meetings and stable partnerships!

Ambassador of the Republic of Korea
