Investor's Guide 2016


Ladies and Gentlemen!

It is my pleasure to welcome you on the pages of the "Investor’s Guide" edition. Here you can find all the necessary information on opportunities for investors in Kazakhstan, on favorable and stable business environment.

Kazakhstan is located in the heart of the Eurasian continent, and is a bridge between Europe and Asia, in the vicinity of rapidly growing markets of China, Russia and India. The favorable geographical position, macroeconomic, social and political stability have established in Kazakhstan one of the most attractive investment climates in the region.

If we review the dynamics over the past 10 years, the bulk of foreign direct investments has been attracted during the implementation of the State Program of the Industrial and Innovative Development for 2010-2014. One of the significant program outcomes is that today every third industrial sector has production with participation of foreign investors. This was made possible owing to a significant improvement of the investment climate in the country.

Thanks to the investment policy pursued, our country has improved its position in the international rankings. For example, in 2014 Kazakhstan was ranked 28th in the world by the net inflow of foreign direct investment. At the same time, Kazakhstan was ranked 16th among the developing countries.

Further improvement of the investment climate in the country has become one of the priority tasks of the second five-year plan of the innovative industrialization, too.

Today Kazakhstan is on the verge of new, large-scale endeavors, and we invite you to take an active participation in this process. I would like to wish you success in the implementation of ideas and opportunities that you may encounter in this guide.

For my part, I can assure you that in Kazakhstan you will be provided with the necessary support in all of your business initiatives.

Yours faithfully,

Minister for Investment and Development
