In December 2018, representatives from Pavlodar Region, Kazakhstan arrived to Upper Austria with the aim to share knowledge and experience in lightweight metal production and further strengthen the relationship of the two regions.

The first destination of the delegation group was LKR Leichtmetallkompetenzzentrum, which is the subsidiary of the largest non-university research institute of Austria focusing on new aluminum and magnesium alloys as well as their application with steel parts and composites. Here, the Kazakhstani delegation gained insights about the company`s activities during presentations and a short factory tour. The company visit was followed by an event at Braunau City Hall, where presentations and discussions allowed the participants to share their views and exchange knowledge in the field of light metal production.

This successful meeting ended with a mutual agreement to deepen further cooperation of Pavlodar Region and Upper Austria, and as a result, a Memorandum of Cooperation has been signed between Business Upper Austria and the region of Pavlodar.
