Ariel view of Ramstore Bridge in Astana Date: 11th March 2019
**Note** These dates are currently provisional and will be confirmed shortly.
Sector: Multi-Sector
Mission Sponsor: Pathfinder Trade and Invest

Pathfinder Trade and Invest are in the early planning stages of a Trade Mission to Kazakhstan in September and are in discussion with the British Chamber of Commerce in Kazakhstan.

We envisage that a number of group meetings customised to match the sectors and objectives covered by the delegates will take place during this Mission.

The Kazakh government forecasts 3.5% growth in GDP in 2018 with roughly 71% of this growth generated from sectors unrelated to raw materials. The oil sector, however, continues to be the main driver of growth as oil output increased by 12.5% as a result of oil production from its off-shore oil field in Kashagan.

Under Kazakhstan’s 2015 100 Concrete Steps initiative, with the focus on the implementation of structural and institutional reforms, the Kazak economy is now beginning to show dividends. One of the aims of the initiative is to reduce the role of the state in the economy allowing the growth of other sectors. As a result, the chemicals industry, paper production and beverage sectors saw double digit growth, whereas the manufacturing, agriculture, transport, trade, pharmaceuticals, foodstuff sectors saw strong single digit growth.

Kazakhstan has also been developing its transportation infrastructure creating 2000km of highways and 1376km of railways as well as restoring its airports runways which will only benefit trade going forward.
