The Chairman of the Presidium of the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs Raimbek Batalov spoke about which investors are ready to buy out ArcelorMittal Temirtau JSC, a Kazinform agency correspondent reports.
— The National Chamber has proposals that come from national and foreign businesses for investment in Karmetkombinat. These are investors from the Russian Federation, China and the Middle East who are ready to consider Karmetkombinat,” answered Raimbek Batalov on the sidelines of the plenary session of the Business Council of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia.
He noted that over the past two years, the National Chamber has received a lot of questions and complaints related to suppliers, when they pay poorly, when there are problems with the execution of contracts.
“We see that this situation is now improving. It is very important that the government has taken control of this. And there is an improvement in issues related to suppliers for Karmetkombinat. The second point is that we understand that there are projects that require new grades of new metal, which Karmetkombinat can potentially produce. This requires small investments,” added Raimbek Batalov.
