Dimitri Papadopoulos, Partner, Muellhaupt & Partners:
“The friendship with Tlek Baigabulov is still very fresh, but nevertheless we both have the feeling that we have known each other for many years. Therefore, I am convinced that our friendship is the best basis for collaboration. When I was in Almaty for the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, I had the opportunity to meet in person many members of GRATA's team in Almaty, and I have not only been impressed by their professionalism but also by their warm hospitality. All this and joining our forces, makes us stronger and more efficient in this fast changing world".
