Ramping up to exploit transit hub opportunities

Published Wed, Nov 19, 2014 · 09:50 PM

KAZAKHSTAN, due to its geographical position, has tremendous advantages as a transit hub for logistics and transportation. However there are also challenges involved as its territory is vast.

Plans to build up this infrastructure will require large investments and much development work. The government has adopted an infrastructure development plan that will run until 2020 and is set to double transits, integrate Kazakhstan into the international transport system and develop local infrastructure located outside of city centres.

This will be the country's first large-scale plan for the development of transport infrastructure and its integration into the global transport system. The plan was developed in part by the World Bank and worked out with all relevant interests.
