Export of Kazakhstan-Made Cars
Kazakh car manufacturers are set to expand their export market to Uzbekistan in the next couple of years. Currently, the local producers are exporting their outputs to China, Russia, Belarus and Tajikistan. Experts believe that some measures such as pre-export insurance and Government subsidies are needed to be introduced in order to develop the export activities. The measures will also allow the local companies to be more competitive globally.
