DESTINATION europe Kazyna signed a cooperation agreement on transforming the software programs used at the Fund's portfolio companies. Today, all the key portfolio companies of the Fund are using SAP technologies. One of the main activities of SAP in Kazakhstan is a developing local partners’ ecosystem. Today, SAP's partnership network includes 20 local companies. Large-scale projects were implemented together with Kazakhstani partners of SAP. Also, the company certified more than 600 local consultants in Kazakhstan, who are skilled to perform global-level projects. Finally, telecommunication technologies are at the core of the digital revolution and Nokia, in the past famous for mobile phones, is now one of the world leaders in digital infrastructures and applications. Nokia, a company with strong German roots and a large presence in Germany and exporting many of its products from there, is also one of the driving forces for a ‘Digital Kazakhstan’. The company has established itself as a trusted advisor to the government. It is planning to open new offices in Astana at the International Finance Center and seeks new ways to boost development the local ecosystem, e.g. by creating a meeting space for local digital companies to drive collaboration. Nokia is focused in Kazakhstan on expanding business with the telecommunication providers, government driven national broadband roll out as well as digital mining, digital farming, and smart city or smart Astana projects. In conclusion I would like to emphasize that Germany and its innovative companies will continue to act as dynamic and reliable partners in the diversification of the Kazakh economy and to strengthen further our bilateral economic relations.
