Kazakhstan implements PPP projects worth nearly US$3.5 billion
Nur-Sultan hosts the International Second Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Investment Forum online. On this platform, experts discuss the issues of attracting foreign investment into towns and villages and how to survive the economic crisis during the pandemic. The fourth Meeting of the Infrastructure Financing and PPP Network of Asia and the Pacific will be also involved in the forum’s program. Speakers on the topic are representatives of business and government agencies, investors and foreign experts. To date, 815 projects worth more than 1.5 trillion tenge (nearly US$3.5 billion) are being implemented in the country under the PPP system. These are the construction of schools, kindergartens, mini centers, outpatient clinics and rural paramedical and midwifery stations.
“We are actively developing a so-called “small PPP” that is intensively accelerating in the regions. The same cannot be said for other countries, where the focus is on developing the large infrastructure projects,” said Talgat Matayev, Chairperson of Kazakhstan PPP Center.
