Kazakhstan: Central Asia’s largest economy

A destination for ambitious investors

Why Kazakhstan?

Kazakhstan is located in the heart of the Eurasian continent, being the Commonwealth of Independent States’ second- and the world’s ninth-largest country. It’s also known as the 'locomotive' of post-Soviet Central Asia.

Bordering with China, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Russia sees Kazakhstan bridging East and West, providing vast opportunities for those in need of an effective transit corridor.

The oil and mining industries are one of the main points of interest for international companies looking to expand their footprint; they represent more than half of the country’s foreign direct investments.

To further this investment, Kazakhstan is heavily developing its oil and mining industry through expanding new oil reserve and mining deposits. And it’s working - during the last decade, Kazakhstan has tripled its oil production.
