OECD Investment Policy Reviews: Kazakhstan 2012

image of OECD Investment Policy Reviews: Kazakhstan 2012

This review assesses Kazakhstan's ability to comply with the principles of liberalisation, transparency and non-discrimination and to bring its investment policy closer to recognised international standards such as the OECD Declaration on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises. Based on the OECD Policy Framework for Investment, the Review considers the interaction and coherence of investment policy with other areas such as investment facilitation, trade and competition policy as well as responsible business conduct practices critical for enhancing the investment climate.



This Review presents a blueprint for the next phase of reforms in our continuing effort to create a world class investment climate in Kazakhstan. Since achieving independence in 1991, we have viewed foreign direct investment (FDI) as an important means to increase competitiveness and economic growth, and improving the investment climate remains a top government priority. The OECD has been our long time partner through this process, publishing its first Investment Guide for Kazakhstan in 1998.
