During the visit, Nursultan Nazarbayev heard the information about the work of Atyrau and Pavlodar refineries, and the current situation in the oil market of Kazakhstan.
After listening to the reports, the President of Kazakhstan focused on the importance of using environmentally friendly fuels and ensuring their accessibility for the population.
- We produce buses using gas as fuel. It is necessary to increase the volume of their production. This will stimulate the national economy and reduce the damage to the environment. In addition, the gasification of transport is beneficial for the owners themselves, the Head of State said.
