On December 13, 2017, Kazakhstan Aluminum Company (KAS), a subsidiary of Eurasia Resources Group (ERG), celebrated its 10th anniversary in Pavlodar. Congratulatory letter from Prime Minister Bakynzhan Sagintayev was read during the ceremony.
NFC president Wang Hongqian attended the ceremony at invitation. By this opportunity, he met with governor of Pavlodar Akim Bakauov, ERG chairman Mashkovi and KAS president  Romanov. Governor Bakauov highly appraised NFCs success in the past few years in Pavlodar, being represented by the KAS aluminum smelter project, Bozshakol copper concentrator project, and the petrochemical CPC and SRU projects. He hopes that NFC will make greater contribution to the development of Pavlodar and to the capacity cooperation between China and Kazakhstan. Mr. Wang also discussed with Dr. Mashkovi about the KAS expansion and the cooperation between NFC and ERG in other countries.

After signing the EPC contract for Kazakhstans first aluminum smelter in 2005, NFC  completed Phase I in just 27 months, and then completed Phase II in 2010 with a total capacity of 250,000t/a. Kazakhstan President Nazarbayev visited KAS four times, including both ceremonies for completion of Phase I and Phase II. Mr. Nazarbayev highly appraised the advanced technology and the reliability of the equipment provided by NFC, likening the aluminum plant to an exquisite name card of NFC.
