Kazakhstan is one of the pillars on which the European Union leans in its plans to reduce dependence on Russian crude oil and gas. This year edition of the KazEnergy Eurasian Forum, held on October, 4 and 5, was a special one, because 20 years of Independence are marked.     

The Kazakhstan Prime-minister Karim Massimov in an impeccable English language talked about the facilities the foreign investors find here. At his turn, the European Commissioner for Energy Gunther Oettinger asked Astana authorities to participate in projects, prepared by the EU in order to get gases from Caspian region through Nabucco pipeline, as well as in other projects of the Southern Corridor.  

Surprisingly, the English language spoken by Oettinger, who is German at his origins, looks poorer than the language spoken by the Kazakhstan Prime-minister, who, according his CV, fluently speaks English, Chinese and Arabian.
