Welcome to participate in the Swedish ICT Delegation, organized by Business Sweden in cooperation with the Swedish Embassy in Astana, Kazakhstan. Headed by Mr. Christian Kamill, Ambassador of Sweden to Kazakhstan and with the purpose of presenting strong business opportunities to Swedish companies and promote Swedish products, services and solutions towards key public and private stakeholders active in the ICT sector of Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan has leading positions within several major ICT segments in Central Asia. Kazakhstan’s strategic location between China and Europe allows it to play a critical linking role between these economic giants, as well as to act as communications hub for fast-growing Central Asian region. Therefore, the government aims to become a major technological hub in the region, focusing on ICT. Due to a number of deliberate state programmes focused on ICT and overall development of the sector, the republic presents strong prospects for further growth and business opportunities.
