Over the last ten years, an increasing number of students from Central Asian countries are going to China to study. Kazakhstan ranks first in this list. In the 2003/2004 academic year, only 20 Kazakhstani students obtained education in China under the state student exchange program with Republic of Kazakhstan, while after signing a bilateral agreement on cooperation in 2006, the number of students and trainees – under all kinds of programs (state, corporative and commercial where students pay for themselves), increased several times. According to China’s Ministry of Education, in 2010 as many as 7,874 Kazakhstani students were getting education in China and 1,500 Chinese students in Kazakhstan.

On September 10 and 11, Kazakhstan’s capital hosted the annual meeting of the Eurasian Forum of Emerging Markets. This non-profit organization was founded in 2005 and aims to facilitate a direct dialogue between governments and the private sector in order to establish socioeconomic conditions favorable to growth and shared prosperity. While the plenary session of the Forum was attended by such prominent world leaders as the former Prime Ministers of Italy and Israel, Romano Prodi and Ehud Olmert, as well as the former President of Poland, Alexander Kwasniewski, it was Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev who chaired the high-level meeting.
