Being the largest among CIS countries with immense opportunities for business, according to annual World Bank reports, Russia has made the most progress among the biggest emerging economies in implementing policies to improve its investment climate in recent years.

The uniform customs territory in the framework of the Customs Union as well close cultural links between Kazakhstan and Russia and their common historic heritage are the main drivers for strong economic cooperation between the two countries and permanent growth for trade turnover and mutual investments.
