Western Europe-Western China highway to boost business in Kazakhstan14 октября 2014, 19:10
Vice Minister of Transport and Communications Mereke Pshembayev has promised that the new road “Western Europe – Western China” will be fully equipped with roadside infrastructure, Tengrinews correspondent reports.
President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev has repeatedly spoke about the need to build commercial property along the Western Europe - Western China road.
Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Karim Massimov also spoke about this. Back in 2011 he addressed the governor of Zhambyl Oblast: "There will be a large flow of traffic along the road that will go from Khorgas to Europe and back. This concerns not only you, but also all the Oblasts the road passes through, but your Oblast in particular. You have a lot of entrepreneurs living in the area. Gas stations, campings and other infrastructure can be built here, so pay attention to it."
