• Educational Complex in Astana: Plans for a new high-technology university in Astana (discussed in Chapter 3) envision a large Western presence in terms of faculty and researchers. A special effort should be made to attract talented students from neighboring countries as well. Since markets in Central Asia for technology-intensive products should be an important component of Kazakhstan’s development plans, attendance at the university by future scientific leaders from these countries should in the long run pay off in terms of ties among colleagues with common interests and with influence in their countries.
