Kazakhstan is an upper-middle-income country that ranks 42 out of 144 countries in the 2015-2016 Global Competitiveness Report.

Today country has set very ambitious goal to switch to the "green economy" and have renewable energy account for 3% of all energy produced by 2020, 10% by 2030, and 50% by 2050. Also, under the UNO initiative Kazakhstan plans to create Eurasian "green energy" center in the country.

Big plans need to be backed up by big investments – that's why state supports programs to attract international investments - innovation grants, venture capital financing and technology transfer assistance.

Education is also a high priority for Kazakhstan, and in 2011 it ranked first on UNESCO's "Education for All Development Index" by achieving near-universal levels of primary education, adult literacy, and gender parity.

We invite you to Kazakhstan on Oct. 27. 2016 for #NEWENERGY global startup fest.

We do this for the future. This is our contribution into change in our lives, lives of our children and all the next generations", – said the Minister.
