Following creation of the Customs Union, Russian companies are mass-seeking registration in Kazakhstan, Alexander Shokhin, Chairman of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, reported to Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin April 22, according to Russia's GZT.ru.

“The state of the business climate in Russia is far from being perfect”, Mr. Shokhin said.

“It is important to harmonize our legislations (…) any lagging behind in terms of national legislation leads to Russian jurisdiction losing its competitive edge over (…) jurisdictions of our neighbours”, Mr. Shokhin said.

“Not only is Kazkahstan more business-friendly in terms of social taxes, but also in terms of property protection”, he believes.
