Answering the journalists' questions, Saparbek Tuyakbaev noted the investment attractiveness of Kazakhstan that has increased significantly in recent years. So, earlier, just a few years ago, Kazakhstan was not interesting to transnational companies in terms of investing, but now the situation in the macro region around our country has changed significantly. This became possible due to the wise policy of the Head of State on building the infrastructure in the country and beyond.

Now our country is becoming a transit power through the construction of roads, transnational transport corridors, improvement of infrastructure, logistics and many other conditions. Through Kazakhstan, access to the largest markets of the EU and China opens. There is a restart of the domestic investment climate, which is close to the OECD standards today.

"In addition, Kazakh Invest was created in order to attract large investors to the country, so that domestic entrepreneurship could also be developed," Saparbek Tuyakbaev summed up.
