The projects with a share of Turkish capital are aimed first of all at development of non-resource sector of the country economy. Besides they will provide more than 3000 jobs.

“Today Turkey takes the second place in the number of companies with foreign capital share. Growing number of Turkish companies in our country is one of the basic factors contributing to exchange of capital, best practices and technologies between our countries”, - stated the First Deputy Prime-Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan – A. Mamin, who opened Kazakhstan and Turkey investment forum.

Kazakhstan and Turkish companies have signed 22 commercial documents in the total amount of around 1,7 billions of US dollars. The documents are aimed at realization of different investment projects. Thus, for example, in Zhambyl region it is planned to build a factory for production of soda ash (Na2CO3), which is used in metallurgical, chemical and glass making industries, with total cost of 270 millions of US dollars with creation of 350 jobs.

According to understanding reached between Kazakh Invest and Eksen Group Turkish investors plan to build a new financial, social and business center – Downtown Almaty – in Almaty city at a cost of 300 millions of US dollars.

Whereas traditional industries, where Turkish investors came, were in the past considered to be hotel business, production of construction materials at the level of small and medium business, today major Turkish companies open such new industries as mining and metallurgy, agriculture, agricultural chemistry, metallurgy, treatment industry and much more” - explained S.

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>
