Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation Nurzhan Nurzhigitov met with the Ambassador of Spain to Kazakhstan Jorge Urbiola Lopez de Montenegro. The parties discussed cooperation in the field of groundwater exploration.

Along with the ambassador, representatives of the Spanish company Xcalibur Smart Mapping, which compiles detailed maps of minerals and other resources, including water, took part in the meeting. The data obtained in this way can be used for exploration of groundwater deposits, and can also optimize the costs of searching for them.

According to Spanish businessmen, their technologies are widely used in Australia, Canada, the USA and Europe. The guests also expressed their readiness to help attract grants and funding for joint projects.

“We aim to systematically increase the share of the use of renewable groundwater in the economy and drinking water supply, so Spain’s experience in the exploration of water resources can be very useful. This year the strategic partnership between our countries turns 15. Water is a strategic resource, so we will definitely consider all possible areas of bilateral cooperation,” noted the Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nurzhan Nurzhigitov.

It was previously reported that Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan are strengthening cooperation in the water sector and industrial cooperation. This also applies to the joint management and use of transboundary water bodies.
