ICT business growth
Kazakhstan has outlined intention to grow to be the foremost 5G nation
by revealing that the nation will assemble round 7,000 towers to
present the subsequent era community protection.
General Director of “Mobile Telecom Service” LLP Sergey Konkov
revealed that the introduction of this expertise will allow
Kazakhstan to grow to be the primary nation in Central Asia and CIS in
phrases of 5G growth.
The bidding for 3600-3700 MHz and
3700-3800 MHz radio frequency waves was carried out. The complete
worth of the acquisition amounted to 156.6 billion Kazakh tenge
($336.9 million). The winners of the public sale, Kcell and
Tele2/Altel, will start the development of the towers. It is
anticipated that the infrastructure will probably be commissioned by 2025.
Askhat Orazbek, the Deputy Minister of Digital Development,
Innovations and Aerospace Industry of Kazakhstan stated that the
introduction of 5G networks will enhance the velocity of knowledge
switch, enabling companies to extend their operation tempo. He
added that 5G expertise will contribute the good metropolis idea
implementation and the operations involving drones.
Currently, Kazakhstan already outpaces Central Asian international locations,
Russia and another CIS international locations by way of cell web
velocity. The median velocity of cell web in Kazakhstan reached
22.6 Mbps in September 2022, which is 14.5 p.c greater than within the
identical month the earlier 12 months.
For comparability: in Russia, this determine amounted to 21.4 Mbps.
Among the Central Asian international locations by way of cell web velocity
Kazakhstan is adopted by Kyrgyzstan (19.6 Mbps), then Uzbekistan
(15.8 Mbps), then by a large margin – Tajikistan (7.9 Mbps).
The introduction of the 5G protection in Kazakhstan will allow
the nation to make dramatic enhancements within the scores and within the
cell web velocity skilled by customers.
Last, however not least, Kazakhstan, along with Azerbaijan, goals
to put of an underwater fiber optic communication line (FOCL) in
Caspian Sea in 2023, the Minister of Digital Development,
Innovation and Aerospace Industry of Kazakhstan Bagdat Musin stated
earlier this 12 months.
“The venture will present the regional international locations with
different web entry, in addition to broaden the Europe-Asia

LLC – from Azerbaijan,” Musin stated.
Chemical business on the rise
Chemical business was one of many areas of the largest
growth through the 12 months. In 2022 Kazakhstan agreed and began
implementing quite a few important tasks, which can enhance the
manufacturing output of the Central Asian nation.
Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan reached an settlement on the
implementation of a mineral plant manufacturing facility venture in
the Navoiy Region of Uzbekistan.
Early estimates prompt the venture to be value round $1.3
billion. It is anticipated that the implementation of the venture will
create 150 workplaces within the area.
Kazakh “Kazphosphate” LLC and Uzbek “Uzkimyosanoat” JSC will
take part within the implementation of the venture. The first part
of the venture encompasses the beginning of potassium nitrate (100,000
tons) and potassium sulfate (100,000 tons) manufacturing in Uzbek
“Navoiazot JSC” earlier than 2024. The second and third phases of the
venture will happen in Olmaliq and Fergana.
In late 2022, Kazakhstan attracted Chinese investments for the
development of a fuel chemical plant in West-Kazakhstan area.
Chinese CITIC Construction and China Huanqiu Contracting &
Engineering will take part within the implementation of the venture
along with Kazakhstan’s Zhaik Petroleum LTD.
The plant could have an output of 130,000 tons of methanol per
12 months. Some 500 workplaces will probably be created through the development
part, and 220 everlasting workplaces will probably be opened upon the
completion of the venture.
The facility is anticipated to be launched in late 2024. Upon
completion, it’s deliberate to implement the second stage of the
venture for the manufacturing of ammonia and carbamide, the price of
which will probably be $200 million.
Further, a venture for the development of a plant producing
chemical fiber from polyethylene terephthalate waste, value $20
million, was launched on the territory of the Badam industrial zone
in Kazakhstan’s Turkestan area.
The complete most annual quantity of manufacturing of the plant will
be 50,000 tons of completed merchandise. Around 100 workplaces are
anticipated to be opened upon the completion of the venture.
Company officers revealed that a number of export agreements are
already in place, and 90 p.c of manufacturing is anticipated to be
bought overseas. The manufacturing of plant will probably be used as sintepon for
bedding, upholstered furnishings, and garments.
Also, this 12 months, the “National Industrial Petrochemical
Technopark” efficiently finalized 4 tasks. Additional 22
tasks are being applied; together with the development of an
built-in fuel chemical complicated, vegetation for the manufacturing of
plastic packaging merchandise, polymer merchandise and others. Within the
above tasks value 757.7 billion tenge ($1.61 billion) 4,829 jobs
had been opened.
Mining and metallurgy business
The Head of Aktobe area signed Memorandums of Understanding
with a bunch of overseas traders, together with the Eurasian Resource
Group (ERG), in addition to enterprise consultant from Türkiye,
Germany, Lithuania and different international locations. The MoUs define intentions
of traders to allocate a complete of two.7 trillion Kazakh tenge ($5.7
billion) for the area’s mining sector.
The most vital 4 tasks will probably be carried out by the ERG,
which will probably be accomplished by 2025. ERG will fee the second
stage of the “10th Anniversary of Independence of Kazakhstan” mine,
which can create as much as 1,000 jobs. Upon the completion of the
venture, chrome ore output will attain 7.5 million tons per
In 2023, a manufacturing facility for processing stale and present
chromium-containing sludge with the manufacturing of
chromium-containing focus will probably be put into operation within the
area. The venture will create 270 everlasting workplaces.
Kazakhstan may even implement the development of recent vegetation on
the territory of Saran Industrial zone in Karaganda area in 2023.
Director of the Saran industrial zone administration division
director Zhaksylyk Akhmetbekov stated that energetic work on attracting
traders to the Saran industrial zone is underway.
“The Regional Coordination Committee authorized three new
tasks. The tasks are on development of a plant for the
manufacturing of galvanized coiled metal with polymer coating, a
manufacturing of metal longitudinal electric-welded pipes and a
hot-dip galvanizing plant. These tasks are high-tech, the place
fashionable achievements will probably be utilized within the metallurgical business.
All merchandise deliberate for manufacturing are targeted on import
substitution and export,” he stated.
According to Akhmetbekov, land plots have been offered for the
development of manufacturing services.
Renewable vitality tasks

the “green energy” business.
For instance, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan launched the development
of a joint solar energy manufacturing enterprise on Issyk Kul lake,
value round $35 million. In complete, the events plan to construct
a number of photo voltaic stations in Kyrgyzstan with a complete capability of 300
The settlement on the development of a photo voltaic plant was signed
between Kazakhstan’s “TGS-Energy” funding firm and
TazaEnergy, a subsidiary of Kyrgyz “National Energy Holding
Company” OJSC. Some 80 ha of land within the Toru-Aygyr village will probably be
allotted for the venture. The sides plan to finish the
development by December 2023. The photo voltaic plant is anticipated to
stay in service for 25 years and can provide round 90 million
kW/hour every year.
A 153 MW “Chromtau-1” wind energy plant may even be constructed
and commissioned within the framework of the MoU signed between numerous
traders and Aktobe area.
The implementation of the venture will cut back the CO2 emissions
into the environment will probably be diminished by 520,000 tons per 12 months. It is
