The Mayor of the city of Almaty Mr Akhmetzhan Yessimov pledged full government

support for Almaty's bid for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games today at a press

President of the National Paralympic Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan Mr

Kairat Boranbayev and Almaty 2022 bid Vice Chairman Mr Andrey Kryukov joined

Mayor Yessimov at the conference to discuss the various levels of government

support that Almaty 2022 has secured ahead of tomorrow's vote.

The speakers also highlighted how recent developments, including the approval

of Kazakhstan's membership to join the World Trade Organization (WTO) and

extension of its visa-free program, would help to promote the country's

international brand and make it more attractive to investors and tourists.

The new visa policy permits unsupervised travel for 15 days for Organization

for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, along with

Malaysia, Singapore, and United Arab Emirates. The new policy will help boost

tourism, stabilize markets and cross-border trade, and solidify relations. It

will also brand Kazakhstan as a cosmopolitan, Western-friendly, emerging

economic partner for the West and Asia.

Mayor of the city of Almaty Mr Akhmetzhan Yessimov: <Almaty's bid is a key

element of our city and region's long-term goals. That is why it has the full

backing of our Government, who has guaranteed that any shortfall in the cost

will be met. This includes the use of Kazakhstan's $75 billion sovereign wealth

fund if required. Kazakhstan has the financial strength to deliver a great

Winter Games without spending tens of billions of dollars. Almaty 2022 will

serve as a model for future Host Cities and prove that similar developing

nations can host the Games affordably and sustainably>.

With the finish line in sight, Almaty 2022 expressed its optimism heading into

the final vote and continued to reiterate the benefits of its unique vision for

the Winter Games.
