Interregional cooperation between the Atyrau Region and Aberdeen has been developing since 2002, with a focus on exchanging experience in infrastructure development, support for small and medium-sized enterprises, import substitution and increasing the local components of oil and gas projects.

Aberdeen's authorities also initiated and actively promoted Atyrau's inclusion as a permanent member of the World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP) in 2009, having officially registered Aberdeen's status as Atyrau's twin town in 2011.

The Aberdeen authorities' visit reflects their willingness to intensify dialogue with the akimat (mayor's office) of the Atyrau Region in order to jointly promote investment and export potential due to similar sectoral structures of the regions' economies, as well as intensify cooperation in digitisation, innovation, green technologies and renewable energy sources.

The Akim of the Atyrau Region, Nurlan Nogayev, met with the head of the British delegation – the Aberdeen City Councillor on international issues, and former Lord Provost of Aberdeen John Reynolds. The sides discussed promising areas for expanding trade as well as economic, scientific and technological cooperation. The British delegation also met with the Atyrau Region's business executives to exchange views on the opportunities for cooperation between Kazakh and British businesses in joint projects and the establishment of direct business ties.

The visit resulted in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, and in an agreement to develop a joint action plan to enhance interregional cooperation.

Brazil’s version of trump: why is it «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align:justify">Racist, homophobe, misogynist and pro-torturer. Because of his profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such image and was considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker that she was too ugly to be worthy of raping. He said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why does Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How does such «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president? </p>
