It is planned that the visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to Central Asia will bring concrete results in the mutual relations of this region with Europe. Macron has already arrived in Kazakhstan today. He is expected to leave for Uzbekistan tomorrow. In both cases, the main topic of discussion will be energy, especially nuclear energy, which is directly related to uranium mining, which is one of the main industries of these two Central Asian countries.
The Elysee Palace has identified two main goals of the French leader’s visit to these countries. These goals include increasing the diversification of strategic and economic relations and strengthening the participation of these countries by signing agreements in areas such as energy, supply of mineral resources, transport and aviation. As reported, President Macron will be accompanied by ministers of industry and foreign trade, as well as about 15 heads of large corporations on his visit to Kazakhstan.
France is particularly interested in participating in the construction of the first nuclear power plant in Kazakhstan (the question of the construction of the plant will be put to a referendum by the end of the year).
