Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Askar Mamin has urged the Government to bend every effort to support the industries with the most stable domestic and external demand.
At the September 15 session of the Government, Premier Mamin said amid the high level of instability on the foreign markets it was crucial to bend every effort to support the industries with the most stable domestic and external demand. Those, according to him, include light, food, chemical, manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries. Mamin also emphasized the need to step up production of domestic construction materials. The head of the Kazakh Government added that amid slumping petroleum prices the emphasis would shift to technology intensive industries.
“In this vein, I instruct the Ministry of Industry together with government agencies and regional authorities to not only implement all projects planned for this year, but also map out and expand the pool of the projects within the Industrialization Roadmap and try to add new projects,” he said.
