«The pace of development of the International financial centre «Astana» can not fail to impress, because there is painstaking work on the creation of advanced financial technologies and professional development programs.
The relevance of the topic of today’s expert school – «the Role of the AIFC in the integration processes and the formation of the financial space of the EAEU» – is beyond doubt. Today, the EAEU has an extensive agenda, plans for the development of integration are painted until 2025. One of the main directions is the formation of a single financial market of the EAEU.
I am convinced that the AIFC will harmoniously complement the mechanisms created within the EAEU aimed at ensuring sustainable economic growth.»

I believe that the AIFC will become a platform for testing new approaches and new tools. I believe that the knowledge gained within the school will benefit the countries represented today by the participants.
