For the first time, cooperation between Kazakhstan and Russia for export credit activities has been implemented. Now part of the risks of insuring short-term receivables of Kazakhstan exporters has been transferred to KazakhExport EIC JSC.
In Moscow, as part of the XIII International Conference “Eurasian Economic Integration”, a reinsurance contract was signed between the National Company KazakhExport and the Russian Agency for Export Credit and Investment Insurance Exar. This agreement will combine financial instruments of the two companies to support some Kazakh-Russian joint ventures, as well as exports of goods to third countries. The agreement is the result of a memorandum of cooperation between Kazakhstan, Russia, the Republic of Belarus and Armenia signed in 2017 at the Eurasian Week Forum. The memorandum specified the key parameters and principles, based on which the cooperation is being built now.
