Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev will arrive in Vietnam later on Sunday for his first official visit to the Southeast Asian state, the Kazakh Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
Several bilateral agreements will be signed and a Kazakh-Vietnamese business forum will be held during the three-day visit, Altai Abibulayev said.
Nazarbayev’s trip is expected to “give a new impetus” to the two states’ bilateral relations, he added.
Kazakh-Vietnamese trade turnover more than halved in 2010 to $38.2 million from $88.4 million in 2009, according to Kazakh statistics. In January-August 2011, bilateral trade reached $33.3.
