On February 19-21, Chair of the Senate Committee for International Relations, Defense and Security, Dariga Nazarbayeva, visited Singapore as the 63rd Lee Kuan Yew Exchange Fellow (LKYEF). Dariga Nazarbayeva was the first Lee Kuan Yew Exchange Fellow from Central Asia.
Dariga Nazarbayeva met with Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, Chairman of the Governing Board of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy during her visit to Singapore.
Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong wrote, “Happy to have the opportunity to welcome Dariga Nazarbayeva, Chairperson of Kazakhstan’s Senate Committee for International Relations, Defence and Security. First met her in 2016 when I went to Astana. She is our first Lee Kuan Yew Exchange Fellow from Central Asia. She is here as part of our high-level exchanges to foster closer relations between our two countries. We discussed the potential opportunities for collaboration. Kazakhstan is our largest trade partner in Central Asia and a good friend. Singapore’s strategic location along the Maritime Silk Road complements Kazakhstan’s position along the Silk Road Economic Belt. Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy has helped Nazarbayev University to set up a similar school. So our ties are strong.”
