The country has seen significant expansion in sectors such as retail and wholesale trade and construction,” the statement says.In its May report, the EBRD expected the Kazakh economy to expand by 3.9% in 2023 and by 4.2% in 2024.According to the EBRD, there has also been a pick-up in public and private investment in infrastructure, transport and warehousing, reflecting Almaty’s growing role as a distribution hub serving Central Asian markets.“The ongoing war on Ukraine, however, may have a negative impact on the operation of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium terminal on the Black Sea, potentially disrupting Kazakhstan’s oil exports,” the statement says.In 2022 the economy of Kazakhstan increased by 3.1%. The country’s GDP growth reached 4.9% in January-August 2023. (ICE ALMATY)
