Minister of National Economy Alibek Kuantyrov said that at the end of 2022, the volume of investments in fixed assets amounted to about 15 trillion tenge, which is nearly 94% of the plan.
According to him, there is a gradual recovery of investment activity despite the wait-and-see attitude, which investors often take due to the current foreign economic situation. At the same time, there is a trend of growth of foreign direct investment in the non-resource sector of the country.
In order to further improve the investment climate, it is proposed to implement a number of comprehensive measures:
reduce the period of approval by state agencies for investors' applications for preferences;
reduce the threshold volume of investment for obtaining state support benefits.
Prime Minister supported these approaches, noting the need to thoroughly elaborate a list of priority areas for which preferences will be provided, and consider all regional characteristics when approving new rules.
