Kazakhstan is increasing export volumes
Kazakhstan is increasing export volumes. The list of goods shipped abroad is very diverse: from industrial production to consumer goods and food. Enterprises are becoming more and more export-oriented. Pavlodar free economic zone is one of the examples. Petroleum coke calcination plant’s exports goods to Russia’s Aluminum Company and a number of Chinese enterprises. In total, eight plants are operating in Pavlodar special economic zone, 15 more will be launched soon. All of them will use advanced innovative technologies.
MUKHTAR KUL-MUHAMMED, FIRST DEPUTY CHAIRMAN, NUR OTAN:
Over the years of independence, the head of state has created favorable conditions for doing business in Kazakhstan. This time he focused on not just production volumes but modernization – on modernizing production and thereby increasing profits and volumes that will ultimately boost the economic development.
Kazakhstan’s scoping units were shipped abroad for the first time. Kazakhstan’s plant manufacturing military electro-optical products shipped its thermal imaging devices to Turkey. The company signed a contract worth nearly $6 million in November last year. Along with the military equipment, road construction enterprises are increasing export volumes. The local Tengiz Plus enterprise is expanding production of traffic signs. Tengiz Plus has made over one million road signs in 16 years. The products meet all international quality standards. The signs last for 10 years retaining color, brightness and the quality in any weather conditions. The enterprise has introduced innovations and started making double signs that are easy to mount.
VLADIMIR KOLOSSOV, HEAD OF WORKSHOP:
Previously, we drilled holes to fix the sign. Our tool helps to install the sign on any surface regardless of the basement or bollard diameter.
Traffic signs, information boards, signaling cones – these products made in Astana factory can be seen along the international highways in Shymkent, Atyrau, Semipalatinsk, Ust-Kamenogorsk and Astana. The company’s director says the number of orders is increasing.
VLADIMIR MILYUSHIN, COMPANY’S DIRECTOR:
Infrastructure is being improved in Kazakhstan. New roads are under constructions. Our products will be in demand. The company is involved in the construction of all highways; Astana-Burabai is one of them. Our recent project was Western Europe - Western China. We have equipped the entire road. We also worked on Almaty-Kapchagai, Almaty-Ust-Kamenogorsk and Petropavlovsk highways.
