The United States has always been a strategically important partner for Kazakhstan. In 26 years, the US and Kazakhstan have reached an unprecedented level of mutual trust, commitment, and partnership.

"I am here today with a very important mission - to ensure the implementation of the agreements reached by the leaders of our countries in the White house. Now is the time to build on the positive trends currently emerging for both countries and move towards innovation and knowledge projects. Over the past few years, Kazakhstan has completed a large-scale reform program, which has improved the business and investment climate, as well as integrate our country into regional and global trade," Deputy Prime Minister of Kazakhstan said.

"On the initiative of the Head of State Nursultan Nazarbayev we are creating an international Technopark of IT-startups (Astana Hub). It is a unique platform for it companies, investors and others to promote digital development. The official presentation is scheduled for November 5, 2018. I am delighted to encourage our American partners to make most out of our ambitious plans. We welcome you all to use broad investment incentives and state support. And of course, invest in Kazakhstan," concluded Zhumagaliyev.

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

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, 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 did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
