Mexico, Kazakhstan Seek to Link Eurasia with Latin America

MEXICO CITY – Building a bridge between Latin America and Eurasia is the main objective of Kazakh Foreign Minister Erlan Idrissov’s visit to Mexico.

“Kazakhstan can be used not only as a final destination for investment, but as a platform where investors come, take advantage of the favorable climate for investment, of a strong private sector, of a business-friendly policy, and through accords with local firms can reach neighboring markets,” he said in an interview with Efe.

Astana’s “excellent” relations with Russia, China and India can benefit Mexican investors, while Mexico’s warm ties with Central American and Caribbean nations can serve to expand Kazakhstan’s interests, Idrissov said.

“It’s one of the most interesting aspects. Mexico is the bridge for Latin America and the Caribbean, and Kazakhstan is the bridge in Eurasia, so we must get the maximum use from this bridge between our two countries,” said the first Kazakh official to visit the Aztec nation.

Idrissov has met with Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo and Foreign Secretary Jose Antonio Meade, among other senior officials.

He has also held discussions with Mexican business leaders and with former President Vicente Fox.

As foreign policy looms larger in Kazakhstan’s plans, Astana “is opening new geographies,” such as Latin America, Idrissov said.

“That was the purpose of my visit. We come and we say that we are expanding our presence in Latin America and you, Mexico, are a very important door for Kazakhstan,” he said.

“Equally, Kazakhstan would be completely happy to promote the interests of Mexico in our part of the world, in Eurasia.” he said.
