A group of businessmen from Kazakhstan will be invited to visit Fiji soon to look at possible business prospects, especially in the tourism sector.
Kazakhstan’s Ambassador to Malaysia Beibut Atamkulov revealed this in Suva yesterday after meeting Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola.
Atamkulov said he is also keen on the aviation industry, especially after discovering the three weekly flights to Hong Kong and Korea.
And Kazakhstan and Fiji nationals may soon be free to visit each other's countries without worrying about visa requirements, says Kubuabola.
“The two countries would be looking at a reciprocal visa arrangement. In this way, Kazakhstan and Fiji nationals will be free to visit each other without any worries on visa requirements,” he said in a statement.
He said they will also invite Kazakhstan to have an honorary consul in Fiji.
Kazakhstan is one of the 15 independent states that seceded from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in its dissolution in 1991 and is important to world markets because it has significant oil and natural gas reserves.
