The panel discussion was a first in a series of monthly events focusing on business opportunities in various regions organized by Trade and Export Middle East magazine in association with Dubai Exports, an agency of Dubai's Department of Economic Development.

Its business-friendly environment now rivals even those of high-income OECD economies. It is definitely a market worth exploring, which is why Al Hilal Bank chose Kazakhstan as its first overseas destination.
