Each year the amount of grants made by corporations, foundations, and government agencies increases. Organizations that do not have enough funding in place to hire more staff and set up an office for the express purpose of writing and managing grants can benefit immeasurably from the services of our grant or subvention file consultants.
In the past 10 or 15 years, interim management has emerged to become an industry in its own right, one that provides a wide range of services to businesses. There are a number of different business situations that could result in the need for an interim manager. Typically these could be situations such as crisi management, sudden departure, illness, death, change management, managing change or transition, sabbaticals, MBOs and IPOs, merges and acquisitions, and project management.
Opening an operation in a new market is generally the most costly and time-consuming way to enter it, but the rewards and benefits can be great. There are important legal and financial implications involved in setting up a business. You should take advice from our accountants or business advisers and lawyers.
There are three ways to open an overseas operation are to set up:
Below is a detailed summary of the procedures, time and costs to build a warehouse in Kazakhstan. This includes obtaining necessary licenses and permits, completing required notifications and inspections and obtaining utility connections.
The Trade Union of Construction and Building Materials in Kazakhstan invited the BWI from 14-17 August 2012 to Almaty for site visits and meetings with the Almaty Engineering and Construction Company Almatyinzhstroy, the Almaty Metro company Almatymetrokurylys and its trade union committee and the management and the Almaty Department of Control and Social Protection.
The country has been moving for some time toward renewable energy sources, with several projects along these lines.
For example, workers installed a demonstration solar-heating system in a children's home in Kyzylorda in 2002.
Kazakhstan's first-ever solar power station began operation in Sarybulak village, Almaty Oblast, in June. With a production capacity of 52kW, it supplies enough power to light houses and pump water from a well, Kaprishev said. The project was implemented with UN Development Programme support as part of the Green Village international initiative.
Kazakhstan has huge potential for solar energy development. It records 200 to 250 sunny days per year (and up to 300 in the south-east), and radiant solar energy is estimated to reach an annual 800--1,300kW/sq. m.
"Using solar energy for home-heating purposes is possible anywhere in Kazakhstan, whereas large solar stations can best be located in southern regions and near the Aral Sea," Rakhimov said, adding that aggregate fuel savings through the use of solar energy are compatible with the output of a medium-capacity coal mine.
As a project involving a renewable energy source, the solar power station will do its bit to improve the environmental situation in Kazakhstan.
"The station will use green technology, which Samruk-Energo sees as a way to partially compensate for the damage done to the environment by the coal and nuclear industries," Karpishev said.
The 2MW station will be the country's first solar energy project of commercial importance. It’s scheduled to start operating in 2013.
"It's Kazakhstan's first-ever major solar power station involving such efficient elements as photoelectric panels made of single-crystalline silicon, which are capable of converting solar energy to electricity with minimal losses," Samruk-Energo spokesman Oral Karpishev said.
The solar station will partially satisfy Almaty Oblast's growing power demand.
Nurlan Dzhiyenbayev believes in solar power, especially for those who live a long way from Kazakhstan’s electric grid.
In fact, he’s making a living largely by helping those in remote villages and mountainous areas obtain power.
His ND & Co. produces photovoltaic power plants – arrays of solar cells that collect sunlight to convert into electricity.
Dzhiyenbayev’s initial foray into solar was more like a hobby than a business: He began making solar lamps by hand in his kitchen 10 years ago.
