Executive summary

The Republic of Kazakhstan’s economic performance over the past 16 years has been impressive. The transition from a Soviet Republic to an independent market-based economy created significant economic turbulence during the 1990s, as did the Russian crisis in 1998. Since 2000, however, the economy has grown strongly, driven by price increases in its leading exports –oil, metals and grain – allowing the country to record double-digit growth rates.
