ASTANA, December 14. /TASS/. The visit of China’s Prime Minister will result in investments of 14 billion U.S. dollars in Kazakhstan, China’s head of the government Li Keqiang said after his negotiations with Kazakhstan’s Prime Minister Karim Masimov on Sunday.
“Of my recent foreign visits to neighbouring countries in terms of the amount and price of contracts signed during negotiations, the $14 billion [of Chinese investments in Kazakhstan] is the maximum figure,” the Chinese prime minister told a news conference.
