Nazarbayev Receives President of the Council of States of the Swiss Confederation Filippo Lombardi

During the meeting, the parties discussed bilateral inter-parliamentary relations, as well as cooperation in the sphere of new technologies, energy and interaction within the framework of the international organizations.

The President noted that this is the first visit of Filippo Lombardi to Kazakhstan, which is given a great importance.

“Twenty years ago, we established diplomatic relations with Switzerland. We enjoy good trade and economic cooperation between our countries with growing mutual investment. We are interested in the continuation of the positive dynamics of bilateral cooperation,” Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

The President also stressed the importance of inter-parliamentary relations which make a significant contribution to the strengthening of interstate relations.

The President of the Swiss Council of States emphasized the importance of the development of not only political and trade-economic interaction, but also the activation of cooperation in other areas.

“We would like to express our support for the International Exhibition EXPO 2017 with the main theme “Energy for the Future”, and also expressed respect for Kazakhstan’s achievements in many spheres, including economy, maintaining stability and peace in the region. Moreover, in 2010, Kazakhstan successfully chaired the OSCE and Switzerland will lead the organization in 2014. Therefore, Kazakhstan’s experience will be useful for us,” Filippo Lombardi highlighted.
