Within the framework of his working trip to Russia, Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Karim Massimov has met with governor of the Orenburg Region Yuri Berg today.

Kazakhstan is one of the most important strategic partners of the Orenburg Region largely due to geographic position of the region.

At the meeting, the sides discussed the prospects of the development of cross-border cooperation.

It should be noted that Karim Massimov touched upon this issue during his meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in Sochi on Friday.

"I plan to visit Orenburg and to discuss this issue there, and we could synchronize our actions", - Karim Masimov said in a conversation with his Russian counterpart.

"Yes, I am aware of this problem and I have already discussed this issue with colleagues and leaders of neighboring regions, so I offer to discuss this issue together,”  Medvedev supported the proposal of the Kazakh Prime Minister.

Also during the meeting the sides discussed issues of the upcoming XIII Interregional Cooperation Forum with the participation of Heads of State. The theme is the development of transport and logistics potential of the Eurasian space. It is planned that it will be attended by Russian businessmen and business companies interested in establishing and expanding trade and economic relations with Kazakhstan.

Minister of Economic Development, Industrial Policy and Trade of Orenburg region Natalia Bezborodova, Energy Minister Kanat Bozumbayev,  Akim of West Kazakhstan region Altai Kulginov delivered reports on  prospects of development in key areas of economic cooperation.


Additionally, utmost attention was paid to the environmental situation on the trans-border Ural River. That problem was raised during the bilateral meeting with Medvedev as well.
