Nur-Sultan (formerly Astana), capital city of Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan and Croatia intend to pay special attention to trade, economic and investment cooperation.
Since 2016, the bilateral trade has increased by eight times, reaching $350 million in 2018, the azernews.az website reported.
Croatian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, Marija Pejcinovic Buric, made an official visit to Kazakhstan on April 30, where she took part in the opening ceremony of the Croatian embassy in Nur-Sultan (formerly Astana), capital city of Kazakhstan, together with her Kazakh counterpart Beibut Atamkulov.
The two countries will also work out the issue of visa-free visits to Croatia for Kazakh citizens.
Marija Pejcinovic Buric emphasized the dynamic development of the capital city and Kazakhstan under the leadership of the first president Nursultan Nazarbayev.
The name of the capital city changed from Astana to Nur-Sultan recently, honouring Nursultan Nazarbayev, who resigned on 20 March, after 30 years in power.
