Mangistau region has reached high development levels over 25 years of independence. The region was ranked second in the country by population growth. Both high migration and birth rates are being recorded. It attracts compatriots from all over Central Asia. 6 new districts were built in 3 years in the north-western part of the city. 

 

If earlier the Mangistau region was considered as the supplier of uranium, oil and gas, over the time the region became known as the sea gate for Kazakhstan. The Aktau Sea port on the Caspian Sea gave a great economic impetus for region’s development. It was extended to the north due to the large freight flow. This increased the sea port’s capacity three times.

 

ALEXANDER KALYAVIN, DEPUTY GENERAL DIRECTOR, AKTAU SEA NORTH TERMINAL:

The newly launched Grain Terminal has the largest capacity up to 60,000 tons in the Caspian region with the possibility of one-time unloading wagons from two rail roads and loading of grain on a vessel processing 500 tons per hour. The existing terminal capacities allow providing annual re-load up to 1.5 million tons of general cargo and 1.5 million tons of grain crops.

 

RAKIMBEK AMIRZHANOV, DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF MANGYSTAU REGION:

Earlier Mangistau was seen as a dead end, there were no roads, no highway, but not anymore thanks to the implementation of government programs, including the completion of the highway Beyneu-Shetpe, which linked our region with other regions. Construction of Uzen-Turkmenistan-Iran rail road provides Kazakhstan access to the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean.

 

The Mangistau region is becoming an important logistic artery connecting Europe with Asia amid transport infrastructure development.
