On her visit scheduled for September 6-7, Armonaite will be accompanied by a delegation of officials and business people. Transport Minister Marius Skuodis is likely to join her on the trip, too, but a decision on this has yet to be made.

Skaiste Barauskiene, an advisor to Armonaite, says transport and logistics are currently a key area of cooperation with Kazakhstan.

"Last year, despite the pandemic, cargo volumes between our countries grew by almost 40 percent," the advisor told BNS. "Lithuania also sees prospects for cooperation with Kazakhstan in green technologies."

"Tourism also remains an area of ​​great potential for cooperation: Lithuania could offer medical and rehabilitation tourism services," she added.

Armonaite will chair a meeting of the Lithuanian-Kazakhstan Intergovernmental Commission during the visit.

She is also planning to meet with the country's prime minister and ministers for trade, industry and innovation, and participate in the Lithuanian-Kazakhstan Business Forum.

There are over 70 Lithuanian-owned companies in Kazakhstan. The country ranks 20th in terms of trade volume in Lithuania, 18th in terms of exports and 16th in terms of imports.
