Kazakhstan needs to establish special infrastructural zones to increase investments
ASTANA. December 4. KAZINFORM /Dimash Syzdykov/ "Kazakhstan needs to establish special zones with corresponding infrastructure to increase investments", Vice President of the Asian Development Bank Shaoyu Zhao has said today at the session of the Foreign Investors Council. According to him, the industrial investor demand extension of infrastructural services today. Investors of big projects in Kazakhstan will probably require building of their own roads, railways, power plants, waste reduction facilities. Provision of readiness of several zones with such requirements at such large territory as Kazakhstan can attract more investors. We recommend the Kazakh Government to develop Road Map that would provide integral and geographically balanced industrial growth. Special industrial parks with lesser investments are necessary to be build for small and medium investors. Besides, it is necessary to introduce amendments allowing regional akimats to sign contracts on construction of infrastructural facilities using the model of state-private partnership to the Law "On concession".
