AssamAll the stakeholders involved in the tourism sector in the northeast Indian state of Assam have been invited by the Kazakhstan Government to explore opportunities for bilateral cooperation with that country, and especially with Almaty, the business capital.

This invitation was extended by Kazakhstan’s Ambassador to India Bulat Sarsenbayev during a five-day official visit to Guwahati.

Inaugurating an interactive session titled “Kazakhstan-India: Cooperation in Tourism”, which was organised by the Embassy of Kazakhstan and the Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC), Ambassador Sarsenbayev gave a broad description of the main areas of cooperation between Kazakhstan and India.
