Central Asian Business Round Up

An interesting round up of news from Central Asia Beat, including the following business & investment tidbits:

  • Finland’s Nokian Tyres will be working with Kazakhstan’s Ordabasy JSC to build a factory in Astana. The tires will serve the Kazakh and Russian Markets, eventually going into Eastern European distribution.
  • Germany will sponsor Kazakhstan at the WTO and with the OSCE. A powerful sponsor doing Europe’s work for it–and probably gaining insights (and investment inroads) thereby.
  • Uranium development at Gurvanbulag Field in Mongolia, by a Canada-based transnational Western Prospector.
  • Japan has received an invitation to search for uranium in Uzbekistan
  • China Sinopec’s new oil discovery in Xinjiang, Tahe Oilfield, with an estimated 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe).

Wildcats & Black Sheep is a personal interest blog dedicated to the identification and evaluation of maverick investment opportunities arising in frontier - and, what some may consider to be, “rogue” or “black sheep” - markets around the world.

Focusing primarily on The New Seven Sisters - the largely state owned petroleum companies from the emerging world that have become key players in the oil & gas industry as identified by Carola Hoyos, Chief Energy Correspondent for The Financial Times - but spanning other nascent opportunities around the globe that may hold potential in the years ahead, Wildcats & Black Sheep is a place for the adventurous to contemplate & evaluate the emerging markets of tomorrow.
