In his welcoming address, Minister for Innovation and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan Asset Issekeshev emphasized that tapping into the mineral potential of the country is one of the priorities in implementation of the Strategy - 2050. He also recalled that Kazakhstan lifted moratorium on the issuance of new exploration licenses to create favorable environment for the development of large-scale geological prospecting activities and for attracting new investment and technologies.
