Large Kazakh industrial enterprises will need to develop roadmaps for establishing new high-value production facilities. The new Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Olzhas Bektenov, issued this instruction during an extended government meeting.
According to the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers, in the near future, First Deputy Prime Minister Roman Sklyar will conduct negotiations with the heads of significant production facilities in the republic. Primarily, mining companies will be confronted with the challenge of producing high-value-added products.
This directive aligns with the message of the head of state, “Economic Course of a Fair Kazakhstan.” Last fall, the president emphasized that the country should establish distinct industrial clusters. Kassym-Jomart Tokayev proposed giving priority to the deep processing of metals, coal, oil and gas chemistry, uranium conversion and enrichment, heavy engineering, and so on.
Another directive from the Prime Minister concerns the utilization of domestic raw materials in the manufacturing industry. According to Mr Bektenov, industrial giants must significantly increase the procurement of domestic goods, services, and works.
In 2024, the manufacturing industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan intends to implement a total of 180 investment projects worth 1.5 trillion tenge.
