ZHENIS KASYMBEK, KAZAKH MINISTER FOR INVESTMENT AND DEVELOPMENT:
- We divided the priority areas of investment into two groups. The first one includes the key areas that are currently being developed as part of the industrialization program. This includes the chemical industry, petrochemicals, gas industry, engineering, and others. The second group includes the most promising and attractive areas, such as IT, tourism and finance. These directions are just beginning to develop in our country, so we will pay special attention to them.
