According to Zhakupov, the investment fund will finance projects of interest to both states. The fund will also allow the financing of priority projects in various sectors of the economies of Central Asian countries, including Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, and Türkiye.

“This will strengthen Kazakhstan’s cooperation with Azerbaijan and will certainly bring us good profits, because it will be a completely commercial investment fund,” Zhakupov said.
