President of the Khorgos International Near-Border Cooperation Center Kakharman Jazin says that investors offer to build Disneyland in the Kazakh part of the Center.
“A day or two ago we received a proposition to build Disneyland. I am not sure in possibility of implementation of such an ambitious project. Of course, there are some advantages – proximity to Almaty with population of 2 million people. It will be an excellent entertainment park just in two hours from the city. The Chinese part of the Center has no similar entertainment facilities that is why they will be interested to come here too”, Kakharman Jazin said during a press tour to Khorgos.
According to him, Kazakhstani part of Khorgos offers many interesting investment-attractive projects. Thus, 3- and 5-star hotels and a shopping mall will be built there valued at $150 million. One more interesting project is called Craftsman Village where the national souvenirs will be produced.
“To my mind, numerous facilities will be put into operation in 2017-2018”, Jazin noted.
Khorgos International Near-Border Cooperation Center is located on the Kazakh-Chinese border in Panfilov district of Almaty region. The establishment of the Center provides for visa-free travel for the nationals of Kazakhstan and China and third countries for holding business meetings, familiarization with industrial products made in Kazakhstan, China and CIS countries, singing commercial deals and leisure.
