During several thematic discussions, representatives of European countries and domestic experts will discuss Kazakhstan's investment opportunities in the context of post-pandemic economic recovery.

Macroeconomists and researchers will identify global and regional trends, current and future challenges in attracting investment, and possible effective tools to overcome them.

An era of moderate economic growth is coming. The gap between developing and developed countries will widen, and demand for energy resources will fall.

The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, which has paralyzed most of the world's economies, has come as the biggest shock to the global energy market since World War II.

Which way to go now?

Generation of renewable energy sources (RES) may show an increase by 5% in 2020.

Restrictive measures aimed at COVID-19 containment have led to a marked increase in the use of alternative, low-carbon sources of generation, including wind, solar, hydro and nuclear power…

We will discuss the prospects for the recovery of Kazakhstan and the world economy, the global energy market potential, climate change and role of renewable energy sources at the upcoming conference.

Join the international online conference "COVID-19: a challenge for economic growth" next Wednesday, October 7, at 2.00 p.m. on the Institute's YouTube channel.
