Foreign investors eye Astana gas pipeline: Abdrakhmanov
ASTANA -- Foreign investors are interested in helping Kazakhstan build a new gas pipeline serving Astana and some industrial centres, said Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov, Kazinform reported.
"We have already received specific proposals from British investors," Abdrakhmanov wrote in a policy article published in Kazakhstanskaya Pravda Monday (March 12).
Infrastructure projects in Kazakhstan require international co-investment, he said.
"The transition of the municipal, industrial and private sectors to natural gas [from coal] will contribute to improving energy efficiency and resistance to climate change, which is instrumental in our co-operation with a number of international financial institutions," he added.
