Speaker: Dr Carolyn Browne, HM Ambassador to Kazakhstan

Dr Carolyn Browne took up her appointment as HM Ambassador to Kazakhstan in January 2013. In July that year she hosted the Prime Minister for the first ever visit to Kazakhstan by a serving British Prime Minister, highlighting the importance given to Kazakhstan by the UK Government, and she has been busy ever since hosting a wide range of delegations.

The Ambassador will update us on the political and economic situation, and the commercial opportunities. Her tour has been extended so that she will be in Post for the Astana Expo 2017, which will run from June-September this year with the theme of "Future Energy". There will be a UK Pavilion, which will be opened by a VIP visitor on 26 June. The pavilion will host a number of events, to include those in the priority sectors of education, infrastructure, smart cities, oil & gas, mining, financial & professional services.

Dr Browne joined the FCO in 1985 and has served in Moscow, New York, Brussels and Baku. She will speak to us under the Chatham House rule.
