I have many fantastic Kazakh friends and they all tell me about Kazakhstan's deep-rooted problems (especially corruption and nepotism). But I wish all the best for Kazakhstan and hope to see great progress in all aspects of Kazakh society.

Two projects on metallurgy and renewable energy worth $139 million were launched in the first half of the year in the Karaganda Region with Kazakh Invest support, reports Invest.gov.kz.
Four more Kazakh Invest-supported projects worth $438 million are under construction and installation, two of which will be completed this year. Among the projects are Linde Group’s industrial gas production plant and Solarnet’s renewable energy project, which are expected to create 1,800 jobs in the region.

“Since the beginning of the year, nine new investment projects worth 280 billion tenge (US$728.28 million) on renewable energy, chemistry, manufacturing, metallurgy and agriculture are under implementation. Manufacturing and mining are our priority sectors. We will also focus on the logistics and food industries,” said Karaganda Region Deputy Akim (Governor) Almas Aidarov.

Kazakh Invest Chief Executive Officer Baurzhan Sartbayev discussed these upcoming projects and investment attraction more broadly during his July visit to the Karaganda Region, discussing providing structure and modernising production under the Business Roadmap 2020 programme during his visits to production plants of industrial explosives and ball valves in the region’s Saryarka special economic zone.
Fixed capital investment increased 25 percent in the Karaganda Region last year, and the aim is to attract 550 billion tenge (US$1.43 billion) of investment by the year’s end. Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has called for greater investment attraction to Kazakhstan’s agriculture, in particular, over the next three years. Accordingly, Kazakh Invest will support projects on the production of starch, confectionery, meat and dairy.

“An entire cluster (of production) can be developed within these areas,” said Sartbayev during his visit to the region. “For instance, by-products of potato starch production can become excellent feed for livestock. It is thus intuitive to establish a feedlot or dairy farm near such a plant.”
Kazakh Invest national company promotes the sustainable socioeconomic development of Kazakhstan by attracting investment to priority sectors of the economy and supporting investment projects. It is implementing 82 projects worth $15.2 billion, developing 99 projects worth $34 billion and recently implemented four projects worth $217 million, all of which created more than 45,000 jobs. Fifteen of these 185 projects, worth $2.5 billion, are in the Karaganda Region.

The Ministry of Agriculture seeks to reduce the nation’s dependence on imported sugar by building two sugar plants by the end of 2021.
The plants will be in the Zhambyl and Pavlodar regions and cost $775 million. The plants will have a capacity of 100,000 tonnes per year and will use local raw materials.

Sugar production in Kazakhstan fell 45.4 percent in the first five months of this year compared to 2018. Total production the first five months of 2019 was 91,100 tonnes. The largest volumes of production are traditionally concentrated in the Zhambyl region at 67,200 tonnes. Production volumes fell 48.7 percent in the region. The Zhambyl region has two plants called Tarazsky and Merkenskiy. Both plants belong to the Central Asian Sugar Corporation.

The sharp production decline is due to the suspension of the activities of the Central Asian Sugar Corporation. The Shusky, Tarazsky and Merkensky sugar factories were stopped for several months.

Another 24.8 percent of local production was provided by manufacturers of the Almaty region, where the following corporation’s plants operate: Koksu, Aksu, Burundai, Eskeldi and Alakol sugar factories.

Officials hope the two new plants will combat the decline. The plant in the Zhambyl region will cost $208 million while the Pavlodar region plant will cost $568 million. In the Zhambyl region, the plant will get sugar beet from the Chu district.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, in Kazakhstan, the average sugar consumption per year is almost 500,000 tonnes. Of that, 90 percent of the domestic market demand is provided by processing imported cane raw sugar and importing ready-made sugar. Only 10 percent of finished products are obtained from local sugar beet. The main suppliers of sugar for Kazakhstan are Russia and Belarus.
