       ABOUT KCBC:

      Creation of a Kazakhstan Canada Business Council (KCBC) became one of the key measures to promote bilateral business ties. Given the fact that the uranium industry occupies the leading position in bilateral cooperation, CEO of Kazatomprom Askar Zhumagaliyev and CEO of Cameco Corporation Tim Gitzel agreed to become co-chairs of the Business Council (representing the Kazakh side and the Canadian side, respectively). Mr. Gitzel is a member of the Foreign Investors Council, which operates under the auspices of the President of Kazakhstan. The main goal of the KCBC is to promote cooperation, trade and investment between companies and organizations of Kazakhstan and Canada. The KCBC is comprised of Canadian and Kazakhstani businesses meeting once per year (alternating between Kazakhstan and Canada) to address issues pertinent to cooperation and bilateral trade between the two countries. The council is supported by the governments of both sides and forms a platform to promote a stronger and more multi-faceted relationship between Canada and Kazakhstan.
